I wonder what it is, this thing I feel…
Isolation, distance, abandonment.
Been creeping up on me, can’t seem to reel
In the genesis of the strange, silent
Cloud of doubt that is hanging over me,
And which has me shaken down to my core.
Whatever I have done, what’s come to be
A constant companion has brought me more
Daily uncertainty. Where do I stand
With those whose love I’ve counted on so long,
And assumed was to always be at hand?
Is it now to be learned that I’ve been wrong?
A sense of impotence, of uselessness
Pervades. Each day increases my sadness.
