Lonely Goodbye | Germain Droogenbroodt

for those who, wherever, have to die lonely
Awaiting an Answer
©2022 Edward Lee
Chilly the room
the white walls

audible only
the echo of loneliness.

Not a tender word anymore 
no warm embrace

just the time,
a leaking tap,

None knocking at the door
nobody you expect,
no one, except death.
