Nothing

I waited, hoping

Nothing

I stayed behind

Nothing

I keep peeking out the window

Nothing

I am alone

More alone than I have ever been

Adrift

Abandoned — again

Sad

Full of sorrow

My health declines

My will nearly gone

I wait

Alone

Unwanted

Unneeded

Unchosen

Second, again — not even

Tossed aside

Ground underfoot

That night

In the phone booth

That storm

Thunder roared

Lightening cracked

I cried

Damaged then

Damaged now — perhaps, broken

Broken beyond repair

Alone

I weep

My heart cries out

My soul suffers

I have no one

I have nowhere

Alone before

Alone now

Alone later

Alone

      1. I’m so sorry to hear that. I know writers often struggle with this kind of thing and I have watched too many giving up, unfortunately. I hope you don’t give up. Hopefully, things will change. One never knows. In the meanwhile if I can help in any way PM me. I have another blog dedicated to promoting indie authors. I can feature your books there from time to time. 🙂
