Dusk Looks Lonely

I cover it
hiding behind
business
and feigned
cheerfulness

I will not let it
rule me
but it gnaws
just the same
at my ache

I am not alone
but tonight feels
like desperation
and unfulfilled want
and the yearning
still hurts

too much I ask
too much I desire
when life has given
just enough
to survive

I am alive
but barely living
and always lying
to cover
my empty eyes

perhaps someday
there will be
a someday
and I will give
as much as I get

and love at last
