precious time slipped,
a million times
bitter words exchanged,
a million times
soulful tears fell unnoticed,
a million times
hurtful remarks smeared,
a million times
pricey moments melted,
a million times
worlds altered, lives changed-
once more, I am alone.

In response to 3WW prompt.

Linda Jacobs said...

Yes, we are always left alone, aren't we? Well done!

Just someone said...

That's beautiful... I love rhymes:)
- glad to see you back in action!

You were missed!

lissa said...

there's truth in those last words, we might end up alone in the end but is the end really all that important?

I don't know, makes think how lonely life can be sometimes

Mampi said...

We are always alone we just sometimes think we are not!
