Oh, lone. A-lone.

It might be quite dramatic but
again, I am bewildered.

One moment it seems like I have your attention.

The next moment;
gone.

In spite of how much time we may have spent
together in merry, still,

I am lonely.

All of the time I wonder if I have assumed
the life of a leech

-only truly alive when I'm with you.

I used to be independent... I can't say I still am now.
How yearning transforms a person;

it is not for good.

As ugly as this side of love may be, it is but a parcel
of the learning process.

To regain, maintain, and evolve oneself.

This is but temporary, I tell myself,
always.
