Forsaken Soul

My heart aches with something fierce †
An overwhelming sorrow †
Knocking the wind †
Out of my soul †
One by one they pair off †
By design, like clockwork †
Year after year †
Forced to play paranymph †
I begrudgingly comply †
Appeasing my closest friends †
Guaranteed contributions †
To their joyous matrimony †
I dismally watch on †
From the dark recess they left me †
They happily carry on with their lives †
While I am left by the wayside †
I once had a maiden of my own †
As beautiful and wonderful †
That I could have hoped for †
An intimate betrothment was nigh †
The betrayal she sowed †
Crushed my heart to dust †
Abandoned in desolation †
No longer worth my trust †
And now, I painstakingly move on †
At the mercy of my wretched thoughts †
Observing acquaintances becoming espoused †
As I remain indefinitely alone

Author's Note
All of my friends are getting married one by one, and Iím the last one left single. Just wanted to write out my sorrow and loneliness I feel right now.
