Alone

*
Deep inside the dreary place
The Piper knows as home
He plays a song of misery
The one he calls “Alone”
And as the echoes sing along
Emotions overcome
And take the Piper to a place
That makes his body numb
Where thorn and thistle well protect
The rose that he must win
To hold until the echoes fade
And he’s alone again
