Lonesome Loser

Lonesome Loser

In time, he was once, twice, three times afflicted
Burdened with a broken heart built to appease
some wondered what scenes his mind’s eye depicted

Loneliness, an excruciating disease
When her false light found purchase in his darkness
he blindly caressed and nurtured it with ease

Damned to fantasy, empty like a harkness
he courted each one, determined to impress
until each rejection reveled in starkness

Pity the lonesome loser mired in this mess
His poor heart needs to heal and to convalesce
