Alone

“Les hommes vertueux ont seuls des amis.”
  Virtuous men alone possess friends.
   ~ Voltaire, “Friendship” (1764)

Please try listening
Be aware
What wanton tongue has spoken
Without regret
To thence beset
What bonds can less be broken

Please be gentle
With this heart
It can too freely shatter
And once that’s done
Come rain come sun
What more can ever matter

Please be subtle
On the way
Toward tenderness’ summation
Just one false move
Is prone to prove
That gloom can trump elation

Please stay close by
Till the brunt
Of anguish and confusion
Has so faded
We’re persuaded
All alone’s delusion
