THE HEART IN NEED

In a whole wide world of bliss

An idle lonely heart seeks succour

Inwardly sobbing to a bottle of rejection

Suffered in the hands of claimed lovers

Who seek refuge in the midst of plenty

And flee with the fleeing greenish pastures

Draining a well of its tankful of water

Now, a house of living fishes is inhabitable.
