Hope within the human breast-
It seems eternal springs.
Perhaps I tried to fly too high,
Like Icarus with wings.
I saw myself successfully
Entrenched above the world.
Dreams, and schemes, and theories
Within my mind once whirled.
Envisioned gain and glory-
Friends and love sublime-
Alas, Ďtis not to be my lot
To my chagrin I find.
I find myself reclusive-
With no desire for friends
When it comes to socializing
Thatís where my talent ends.
In order to have friends, I hear
A man must friendly be,
And friend, to my dismay, I fear,
That ostracizes me.
Love? Why, yes.. I need it too,
As well as female charms,
And yet I find myself withdraw
When held within their arms.
A part with which I cannot cope-
Does drive me from embrace-
And tends to rob me of all hope,
Here in my lonely place.
Alone, why, yes. I guess I am-
And thusly Iíll remain,
Alone...a man, with my regrets
Alone...my sad refrain.

Live large, people!

I have read alot of your poems.
I must admit, I am a fan. This one speaks worlds to me, for I have lost friends to lovers, and lovers to friends.
