She soared very high before the loneliness found her,
Never thinking for a moment she’d fall from the safety
of her lofty perch to what was awaiting her in depths below.
Soon unforeseen and dire events crept into her life
like black smoke under a door of pure white lace.
This would turn her Wonderland into a dark
Underland of doom.
She spiraled into a fast fall from the perch upon
which she had been isolated from such a fate.
Tumbling into loneliness that would begin its feast
of sucking her soul dry, breaking her spirit
and her desire to face another dark and lifeless day.
This then is the sad tale of loneliness,
A silent but oh so deadly killer.
