Lonely (an acrostic poem)

Looking around the mass of undulating people, Marcus grimaced

Originally he and Andre were supposed to play chess

Now Marcus was at the “party of the century”

Everyone was in everyone else’s space, gyrating to the primal beat

Leaving Marcus craving for a way to flee from all these people

Yet it wasn’t meant to be.  He was an island in that sea of humanity

One thought on “Lonely (an acrostic poem)

  1. Loneliness
    Is so much more pronounced
    When you have to
    share it with others

    It is not like food
    That diminishes
    Or a ragged mat
    That wears out with overuse

    But like a shadow
    come alive
    With an insistence
    To weigh you down
