What Loneliness Did.... - Poem by RIC BASTASA

he builds his wall
to protect himself

he is safe inside
this lonely chamber

like a monk he sits
calmly and chants

the words of peace
and compassion

and then one night
when he completes

what he wants to be
he transcends the

wall and flies away
like a bird and

opts not to come
back inside the walls

where loneliness has
claimed another death.
