So Sad


“So sad”,  they all said,

Lost and alone

he screamed

at the crowd,

they were sad

but in his silence soon forgot,

spaced out on life’s

heady mix of light and dark,

the screams abated

as he faded from mind,

alone and so lost

he whimpered,

noise and the light

streamed into the dark,

they glanced at where he had been,

his whisper unheard ,

his shadow unseen

Lost and alone

In the silence ,

So sad, I mused………

So Sad
