Weekend Writing Prompt #208; Solitudinarian

I stay awake long after dark

Sometimes with burning tears

Others with a ravaging fear

Yet all these times have a thing in common

An unrelenting truth.

That I’m alone.

Never once will I be able to trust

In a manner so deep as to love

And all those that I foolishly thought had my back

Haven’t hesitated to break me down at every chance.

So here I sit— in sadness or wonder I do not know 

But the fact persists

That I remain by myself.

Simply a sorrowful solitudinarian.
