Misses Lonely


"I'm so lonely. I'm Mr. Lonely.
I have nobody..."
these words ring true in my ears
from that shitty song so popular a lifetime ago.
But back then I didn't listen
and couldn't empathize.
I had a friend and
the ficticious world in Runescape.
Even though it wasn't much,
it made a difference
the size of the galaxy.
PNow I've got my lines and my rhymes
and the blue ink of a pen.
Borrowed, of course,
but there for now.
As my being falls off the cliffs of the universe,
the hand that's usually there isn't.
There are not footholds
or ropes.
Just the jagged rocks of dispair below.
Another borrowed phrase,
but nobody will notice,
because I am not here.
Best friend is off in the army on the other side of the nation,
while the boyfriend decided I wasn't good enough.
"I'm so lonely. I'm Mr. Lonely.
I have nobody..."
has taken a whole new meaning.
I'm Misses Lonely....
