I Bid You Adieu

i am one
one with no purpose, no reason, no one

i'm one, with no one

i lost all that is love,
all that is light, all that is life

i lost it bit by bit

gradually, strategically, continually, punitively
its all been stripped

only the bone is there,
the bone is bare

and down to bare bones
is not living

only emptiness remains

the only question left is 'Why? '
Why bother?

and i've yet to uncover an answer
...perhaps that is the answer?

in which case i truly am done

i was one
and now

i am done
