FOR: ____

A recluse bloats with bruises

Above the note he left on the floor.

He chose to choke the excuses of why he couldn’t cope,

And address the letter to loneliness-- the front reads, FOR: _____

Scrawled on the envelope

With nothing written inside.

They’d lost him long before the rope

It’s been since then they’ve thought of him and cried.

The End
