Alone

Location

I wake up.

I dread the day.

I shrug of pain.

I pretend I'm not alone.

I go home.

Why I live I don't know.

 

I watch the news.

The genie has left the bottle.

A nanny goes away.

A robot dies.

A genius cries.

I don't understand why.

 

I don't know why it was him that died.

His eyes so bright.

His smile so wide.

Maybe if he knew how much we cared,

Maybe if he weren't so alone,

Maybe he would still be with us.
