Left Alone Poem

Back in time, we grew up together,
Believing we’re families cause we came from the same fold,
We weren’t born with silver spoons but that didn’t matter,
We still felt the warmth of love even in the extreme cold;

Older we became, these memories still haunt us to and fro,
Every breath, every memory I saw you as my own,
That you’ve lost that sense of consanguinity is unbeknown,
Why make me feel you’re there when you know I’m left alone?

I met you as a friend, associate, and colleague,
We shared all we could both tasks and vigorous chores,
Right within you’re trying to crush me with beasty jaws,
Why make me feel you’re there when you know I’m left alone?

I grew up like a palm with soft green fronts,
Filled with hope of dawn with a rising sun,
But your awesome smile stole my glowing day,
Down I fall in love to your dazzling ray,

As a strayer, in you, all of me got lost,
But your dazzling light only got me blind,
While you tossed my heart as a mere dice,
Why make me feel you’re there when you know I’m left alone?

Side by side, lie our poor wooden doors,
Every twilight, every dawn we greet ourselves “neighbors”,
But your heart finds my soul to devour;
Why make me feel you’re there when I’m left alone?

Laugh with me if you truly care,
Hate me well if you think I don’t deserve,
You can’t hate me but smile at my very face,
Don’t make me feel you’re there when you know I’m left alone.
