LONELINESS

Indifference numbs

like an arctic wind

disinterested eyes divide

Minds torn

Wasted seeds underfoot

crush hope

solitude welcomes

hurt distances

tears wash away

unsaid words 

care slips

down invisible walls

haughtiness crowns itself

pride can’t receive

nay, won’t receive

refuses to need

ingratitude lies

jealousy weaves; entraps

to deceive

manipulate

compassion forgives

loneliness returns

hope is forlorn

yet ever expectant
