Alone

Alone. Alone. Alone. 

 

He walks away slowly, lost but not gone. My face burns with acid; my fists are solid stone.

 

Alone. Alone. Alone. 

 

My feelings are irrelevant, it’s not up to me. For once he’s finally happy; for once he’s finally free. 

 

Alone. Alone. Alone. 

 

Familiar faces follow me, all I cannot see. Time sleeps softly, how long will it be? Will the waiting never end? Will I ever again see my dear friend? 

 

Alone. Alone. Alone. 

 

He is not the first to say goodbye, and he will not be the last. For soon, I too will walk away. 

 

Slowly, slowly, slowly. 

 

Lost but not gone, into another world.
