Solitude
Author: Justus Isaiah Richardson

vinebar

Within the torturous realm
Of insatiable loneliness,
The bitter fool contemplates
The meaning of his solitude.

Immersed in the blood
Of imaginary victims,
He cradles the corpse
Of his lost innocence.

Lashing out, as vipers strike,
His words carry his venom,
Deadly poison pours from him
Coursing through his victims veins.

None dare enter his territory,
For his wrath is swift and deadly.
He patrols his borders closely,
Shooting trespassers on sight.

He builds a wall to keep them out,
They could never understand.
He wears a mask to hide his face,
And yells hypocrisy at the world.

Within this torturous realm
Of insatiable loneliness,
The bitter fool contemplates
The meaning of his solitude.
