Nobody Knew

A crime was never perpetrated.
His sentence underestimated.
A life concealed beyond their view.
An innocent man nobody knew.

He died when no one came around.
They lied so truth was never found.
An empty heart became his home.
And now he writes this stupid poem.

    Deeply sad yet a lonesome heart can relate. Though I disagree that it is a stupid poem...it's just deep.

    Our Robert is never stupid, at least from my point of view. Who else writes such exquisite comments in witty rhyme. Wasn't sure you speak of yourself here so thought I'd clear the air and let you know how special you are! Love, *Lizzie* :)

    far from stupid! the ending was surprising, which made the poem that much more intereting...
