Deeply do I feel this aloneness
Bewildered by the cause
Questions unasked
Liars unmasked
I want to speak but I pause

Rigid is my conviction
That I will leave this place
Dead is my soul
It’s under control
As is the blankness on my face

Crowds around me laughing
As I stand upon the edge
Despair, my friend,
Love, at the end
Not living up to your pledge

Quietly I slip away
You even won’t know I’m gone
Will you remember that
I was here all along?

The door closes
I cry one last time
And thus end’s this poet’s
Very last rhyme.

the edge
is not

we can gather there
and talk
and mock it's sudden
with our's

I realize this isn't a new write, but each time
I read this the emotions feel so raw and fresh.
I hope you're ok.

you have not truly met the poet.

I'm glad you've shared this, Sharon.
For what you wrote,
and for what brian wrote in response.
