Alone Without Friends – Random Twitter Poem for June 23rd

Today’s words came together and brought out a sad little poem about someone who has no friends and always sits alone eating lunch, perhaps it is about a person in school or at work. Thanks to the following twitter followers for the 12 random words (in blue) today:

@jmbuckingham (dove), @RobinJP (sidekick), @RemBeatZ (Regenerating), @santasdevil (hamburger), @Zorlone (cotyledon), @KathrynVercillo (insecurity), @katheesue (mishmash), @supertroll (rocky), @jeremylewit (keel), @jamiain (monkey), @SusanBerland (exuberant), @devil_in_jail (fire)

Alone Without Friends

Washed in rocky insecurity
feeling like a mishmash sidekick
to a powerful regenerating superhero
you sit by yourself, a lone dove
like a monkey eating cotyledon
you finish your hamburger
trying not to keel over
from sadness and despair
heart and mind on fire
wondering why you are here
sitting alone again
another exuberant day by yourself
friends always out of reach
but then again
when have you ever tried?

    Awwwww….. damn. “Scuse me while I wash the pills down with my bottle now.
    Just kidding. Again, a nice picture you paint with words. Not all pictures are happy butterflies either. This is a real one of human pain.
