Alas, forlorn, I cried to the one who stood beside me,
"I have not been without you for some time,
and in this time we have become as one. But now,
I fear, that this time has ended for our betterment,
and of what is right and good. I have another
to journey with, and the affair has endured
for a time. So leave me now without protest,
and leave me nothing for remembrance."
And with that, Loniliness left my side, and I
walked to stand beside yours.
