"Each day I see more clearly I / Will be all alone when I die"

Lonely with Friends


In the company of some friends

Perhaps I can live somehow

Surviving these means toward those ends

Fate has awaiting me now


Each day I see more clearly I

Will be all alone when I die


Yet if nobody wants me in that way

There are so many worse things which could be

I have a few good friends alongside me

Perhaps I can get by from day to day


I was happily married long ago

I loved and lost: perhaps that is enough

To balance out the rest the painful stuff

I know the more I know the less I know


I found someone I wanted

But she does not want me

My heart is hurt and haunted

A distressed property


My friends say not to seek it

And then love will find me

They know yet never speak it

That they would never be

The ones to love me as I need


I give them all my heart I feed

Them but they cannot understand

Because only the lonely do

I need someone to take my hand


What do I need?  I just need you

What can I say? This tale is heart-breaking~!
You have always had a good head on your shoulders
and you Know what to do! Give yourself some
time to grieve then move on with LIFE! The picture
you have is absolutely Fabulous as well! Great job!

I like what Felix said Steve... Jump out of that Absyss your getting pulled under... Find some positive and thrive on it. Use it like a liferaft- and hold tightly to it! YOur fine- just feeling confused! What done is done,as you know! There is a reason 4 all you went through... #1, was for us to MEET YOu and GET to know you, the rest... we shall C... or someone else has the answer, I can't find.
I know what 'YOU' wanted at one time *( That Special Love - seemed to oNLY go 1-way, sad 2 say) :( What was is NOW Gone, w/ last nights trash- your STrOnger and more aware... Don't allow yourself to feel dispair. Since it never came about, just think- another parting of way could of taken place. I think that pain you want to erase permantly in your mind- LOOK Toward Happier times- Don't give up Hope.. Miracles are miracles 4 a ReAson.... Believe! :) LOt's of HuGs-Lady,Sheee OXo, OH, Steve -Great Poem too.... P.S. and let me just say... YOU won't be alone when you die, you fool! :) YOu have us.. bringing your spirit back every now and then!

I think you are drawing negative vibes and it makes for great poetry as long as it is not dragging you down into an absyss you can't climb out of. Thread lighty my friend.
