You thought I was lonely
When I walked by myself
Down the rain-soaked street,
And looked to the sky.

But though I was alone,
My company was the only
One that I desired,
And I was content.

I lived among the stars
And my own head,
The home of my imaginings
Was my home also.

I never needed a friend
For my tears never fell
Until that one day,
And there was no one.

You knew I was lonely
But could not come near,
Because I had always
Turned you away.

The End
