A Loneliness Poem

Like man in the desert, miles from the sea,
thirsty and dreaming of ice cold tea.
Broken and weary he drops to one knee.
He rubs his eyes to wipe the sand free.

Through teary-eyed focus, he looks up to see
a desert oasis and wild palm tree.
Enraptured with joy, he jumps up with glee.
He runs to the fountain. At last, he is free!

Alas. He discovers, it was never to be.
(insert a name here), you are a mirage to me.

"A mirage is something that you see that is not there, or something that is not there that you do not see." --Oliver Hardy
