Left Alone

We search for what is similar
Thinking that the same will satisfy.
Grasping for security
For a friend that will abide.
Longing to feel worthy
Tired of being left alone.

But acting in only words.
Their promises deficient.
Their loyalty found lacking.
Their time is at a premium.
The price - they must be the same!

Caught up in the common
Of Money and Pride.
Working for Worthless
And dying for Time.
Content to conform
To shoving away.

It hurts me inside.
I die as I cry.
Seeking solutions,
Hope fades away.
Left to languish
With an empty hand.

Close the door
Put up walls
Fade away
Cast aside
Left Alone
