What Have I Done?
What have I done to deserve this fate?
To live a life of loneliness
All around me, I see love
Though it never knocks on my door
Everywhere I go, I see couples strolling arm in arm
But my arms are always empty
I have no one to share my life with
My house and my bed resonate with stillness
The hollowness of my soul is a constant ache
And the silence of my heart echoes throughout my being
There has never been anyone to fill the desolate emptiness that is my existence
I think, probably, there never will be
What could I possibly have done to deserve this?
