The title says it all really.

I chose to use no punctuation at the beginning or end as lonliness is not a flash-in-the-pan 3 stanza thing, it's (trying not to sound cliché) an endless, tiresome thing.

"A Soul That Sees True Beauty Walks Alone"

not for crying floods of tears,
nor having faced my greatest fears,
I'm like a vase without the flowers,
what I once was this thing devours,

leaving thorns and shardes of glass
from shattered memories of the past
that cut my flesh and line my throat,
alone at sea I lie afloat,

but barely as I'm sinking quickly,
filling up with something sickly,
drowning me, my hope supressed
and filling me with emptyness
