A contemplation on failed attempts at happiness.

Wanting

Being needed and easily forgotten

Love had risen and then it had fallen

I found the hole growing and deepening

This dark emptiness that required feeding

Faith given and then faith lost

The meaning in life had no gloss

The hole continued to widen and purge

It's diameter grew, and it's pain surged

I found substitutes but with no avail

A glass of rum or a warm cup of ale

Cigarette on cigarette I lost my skill

To cope with emotions, I had become very ill

I found relations: two, maybe three

But in the end always felt twice as lonely

Perhaps to be alone would be my cross

Or my cross is really all the negative thoughts

I found my joy in foolish pleasures

I found my joy in romantic treasures

But in the end, I hadn't anything

All these solutions were found to be wanting
