Loneliness requires self pity
A sorrow that sits on a throne
We pay homage to that pity
That screems at us"Alone!"
Perhaps we've been deserted
The worst alone of all
Perhaps we've been disguarded
And our hero's just moved on
Perhaps the years took away
Our peers one by one
Perhaps death was unwilling
To give another sun
Perhaps a promise was believed
And yet no one has come

    Such strength in its sadness. This was so strongly done. Those last two lines gave me some chills. Wonderful job!

    This is very well written. Loneliness is a very sad word and yet a lot of people live their lives like that. I know - I am one of those people, but I don't ask for pity. I try to keep myself busy. It is not good to live alone, but sometimes we have no choice. Thanks for sharing... Lucilla
