AT THE PEAK OF LONLINESS
Aloneless was my name
Quietness was my game
I loved to create invisible friends
Unfriendly friends looted me already
So I opted for the optimistic Sun
Talking to the moon
Just the other night,
Yielded no results
So I fell inlove with the Sun for its audience
Telling her how much
I admired her light;
Jealousy sprang up
Looking at the moon all teary-eyed
Forcing me to hate myself .
How come i never thought of it?
Now i see clearly that not only humans hurt
Out of sympathy
The coy sun begged me to look away.
Soon the moon spoke tearfully
'you've got no idea how lonely it is up here?'
I laughed and called him 'friend'
What more can i say?
We all are at the peaK of loneliness
