Alone in the Park

Alone she would go to the park by the river

where couples relaxed or kissed with a quiver


She like to watch them, she felt she belonged

but it made her remember about how that she longed


For a connection she missed with a like-minded soul

that she could feel safe with, to fill her heart’s lull


To someone at night she could rumple the cover

and cuddle so slight with someone called lover


She watched them and wondered how they made the connection

Was she lacking something?  Was she seeking perfection?


She would leave the park and find some distraction

so she wouldn’t think of her lack of attraction


To someone she knew was out there somewhere

to sit in the park with and love, should she dare.
