Like a Wasteland


Nature is the cruelest thing,
Bringing dead flowers to a cemetary,
And sneezing as a ghost passes through.
I spent the night reading Keats
And have no one to share him with.

Loneliness is the hardest thing to stive for;
When I get there I cry with happiness
And careen with fear.
