I sit alone and mark the time -
aware of how the hours crawl -
with solitude a friend of mine.
I find my thoughts a careless scrawl,
meandering among the days -
myself the loser in it all.
I view my world through lonely haze,
aware of loss on which I stand
and never think to mend my ways.
There's not a soul to lend a hand;
there's not a man to call me friend.

The Terza Rima

The terza rima is an Italian form created by Dante Alighieri. It features rhyming
cascading tercets and an envoi (ending statement). The envoi can be two lines
or one but both have to rhyme with the middle line of the last tercet. The
rhyme scheme is as follows: aba; bcb; cdc; d or aba; bcb; cdc; dd with the
number of tercets being unlimited and up to the poet.

I've gotten this through Get Watchers before, but I saw a certain picture of a wet teddybear on a gravestone that would go amazingly with this piece...

Some people find company in solace but those people do so because solace is safer. Either way no one should be sad and alone, wonderful words which evoke my emotions like all writing should.
