A Little Off and to One Side

A man on my own

I stand all alone

A little off and to one side

Like all beings of my type

There are dark things

I have to hide

But unlike most others

Of my kind

I am honest

About the darkness

Lying on the inside

I wear no mask

And it is no easy task

When all those I see

Who surround me

So obviously do

I will struggle on

From this hour

Of the early dawn

Until my physical being

Is once and forever gone

And if there is no one

Out there in this crazy world

Special enough and brave enough

To come into my life

To stand at my side

And be my wife

Then I will just have

To do this alone.
