A Poem

Sitting alone on a wooden armchair 

Watching birds flying in the air

Piping melodies of loneliness 

And the dilemma of singleness 

Storms that cannot be stilled  

Promises that can not be fulfilled 

Love that was never true

This and that, which was not true 

Always finding the wrong ones?

The first promised and failed

Always guessing the wrong ones

They all promised and failed

The prettiest, accommodates many

Everyone now has someone 

That someone has someone

All the some ones are not happy 

A life that was never lucky 

A  past that is so dreary 

Deceit that was never perceived 

A heart that was deceived 

True love exist in dreams 

Those in need would sleep

Dreamers are for dreams 

They enjoy love in their sleep

I shall remain alone 

I shall build my home

Oh love, do not come 

I'm a hustler I can't sleep

Love is not for me

It is no longer free

Love is for the rich 

I am not rich.
