Frustration - Poem by Billy Loving

To and fro
Around they go
An endless stream
A scene so serene
Back and forth
South and north
East and west
Which direction's best
Just casual glances
So many chances
In a crowd alone
Their voices just a drone
Is this a person I know?
No recognition they show
No cheerful greetings
No friendly meetings
Just a blank stare
I've ceased to care
Would you want to be me?
If through my eyes you could see
No love to find
No peace of mind
No way to show
Feelings they don't know
No one chases
Just a sea of faces
In search of a better life
Maybe even a wife
Someone with my life to share
Instead of a lonely chair
Such an unfathomable gift
So much weight it would lift
For years I've patiently waited
To feel so frustrated
Anger it feeds
So basic are my needs
Too much to ask?
An arduous task?
No help to find
A world so unkind
Only I will know
The seeds of pain they sow
