The sun disappeared in a distance sky
As a woman walked home with a tear in her eye.
A laugh shared at work, but there’s no one at home
Few understand what it’s like to be on your own.
Home to thoughts of weakness and fear.
The only consolation lies within that tear.
Regrets and confusion with things that have past.
What should have been forever failed to last.
Loneliness lives in a troubled mind
Nowhere to hide, no safety to find.
Alone at night without a helping hand.
Life is suspended by the merest strand
The room’s in darkness, the blinds pulled down.
Her screams are in silence, not making a sound!
