For years he masqueraded the streets


Eclipsed by an array of dancing shadows




He weeped a harrowing sea of tears





Never once had he sought company


Bared by the hands of mere strangers


Nor had he ever offered himself



To be conquered by such fools


In restaurants across distances


He'd gaze as loads of people



Drunk of the finest wines


And ate of epicurean dishes


Briefly they traded glances



The profound malice searing


Ever so fervently in their eyes


Leaving a bad taste upon his breath



Soon after the heightening hatred


Had so suddenly evaporated


Back to square one he was



Anxiously he reached for his cigarettes


A taste of smoke he passionately craved


Tragically he had traded his lungs


In exchange for temporary relief


Cancer was his psychologist
