Looking back

Loneliness
When did I get over you?
When did you leave my heart?
One day, I noticed you…
the next day, you’re gone.
I saw you today…..
but not on my face.
I saw you on the face of another.
It was there in the way she hung to what he said
it was right there in her smile.
I saw it…because it was usually me…
it was in the way she tried to keep her mind
busy.
Oh..loneliness, loneliness….
why not just go away?
You grip the hearts of women
You plan on a long stay.
You are an illusion,

………really an intrusion
on others who are “okay”
Loneliness….just go away.
