Alones

I’ll tell you a story,

The story of a man—peculiar, as he was,

You may have heard of him once before,

This man never cared for company,

Even less for their feelings,

This man believed himself invincible,

So he did what he wanted,

And he did what he liked,

Some terrible, most fun, all adequately distracting,

But the loneliness crept up—one day,

Unbidden and entirely without warning,

It made home in his heart,

Whispered darkness in his mind,

Turned him down a path—

With no people and no light,

And there, the man stayed,

With the solitude that never left,

 

He’s still afraid it won’t.
