Alone

I stand alone,
amidst the crowd.
once there was another,
but no longer.
I walk alone.

I see them on all sides,
surrounding me,
overwhelming me,
smiling faces,
content with the way of things.

But I wanted something different,
Something more.
And in reaching for the stars,
I wandered off a cliff,
over the edge of an abyss.

I wrote this one a LOOOONG time ago, and just dug it up when going through some old notes. Let me know what you think.
