Losing sense of those around,
Often I find I am pushing away,
Naked displays of ardour, to
Easily find a way to downplay,
Longings, of many a face, those deep
Images of grace and love but
Not here. I am without a smile,
Elbowing away companionship and
Staying in exile,
Sailing away, a hundred and more a mile.

The End
