What matter that we lose ourselves

Malign trust with misunderstanding

Abandon friendship for fear

What loss is at hand

When hearts detach

Choosing loneliness over love

Who suffers in such affairs as this

What end served

Lest agony be the goal

Forsaking hope for tears

Empty a soul appears

Seeking only for a forgotten touch

Waiting as years unfold

Alone
