POETRY FREE VERSE – LONELY ON TOP

LONELY ON TOP

I now have the fame and fortune

I’ve always dreamt about

But what price did I pay

to live my life in this luxury?

 

I had a lover who helped my dreams come true

but long work hours and long distance

erode our love away into nothingness

 

People surround me that I don’t really know

In a room with them I feel foreign

Those who I truly care about have given up on me

 

What will it take to break myself free?

Am I willing yet to let it all go?

I guess it depends on what really matters to me

 

Money, power, fast cars, and sex or

True love, friends, family, and belonging
