Everyone says that my

Personality is one that

Starts fires in souls,

Tickles the conversation,

Ends the darkness, and

Invokes the memory of

Nobility long forgotten.

Do I not, then,

Inspire the same for myself?

Does no one see the

Nothingness, the

Torment of my loneliness?

Kicking and screaming,

I beg for a

Love to ease the

Longing that aches in me.

How can one such as

I, mired in the

Madness of

Solitude, discover

Even one who is also

Looking for a life

Free of emptiness?
