Alone

by Christos Polydorou

even when
we are with someone? No,
I don’t feel this way, Morrissey.

I stayed,
after I strayed.
In built within me,
a tower of guilt.

It hits me over
the head. It
will be what
kills

me. Being
alone,
that I could
handle. I

can
always find
good things
to do.

But losing
you, that
I am still
struggling

with. Having
been kissed
on the lips
by a god,

and now
what a come-
down
is this.

I will
change.
I will be
kinder.
