Poem of the Lonely Man

Alone in his room, the man does sit

No sound to be heard, no light to be lit

He thinks of the past, the joys he once knew

But now he’s alone, with nothing to do

The world outside moves on without him

His loneliness is like a feeling so grim

He remembers the laughter, the love he once shared

But now he’s alone, his heart feeling bared

The nights are the hardest, no one to hold

The silence so loud, his heart feeling cold

He longs for companionship, someone to care

But now he’s alone, with no one to share

The man tries to keep busy, to fill the void

But the loneliness persists, like a constant annoyed

He yearns for a friend, a lover, a mate

But now he’s alone, his heart feeling weight

Alone in his room, the man does sit

Wondering if anyone cares a bit

He hopes for a time when he’s not so alone

Until then he’ll wait, in his room on his own.
