In An Ocean Once Crowded - Poem by Circadian Verse

Today is a day of plenty
Only I jump in an ocean, once crowded
Now a desert of loneliness

I will look around me
Laughter and play will sound its song
But I hear only the thump of loneliness
Beating with each heavy movement I make

I will eat after this and look up to the window
I will see the dumb people looking down
And perhaps I will sigh, nod my head
And think of a bad deck of cards, knowing how to play them
But still playing badly

Perhaps the House is extra set against me
But do you give in?
NO, just stay in THERE and swim
