At least I have you John Keats,

James Joyce, at least I have

You to think about and read about

While those still active and

Living all clutter around me

Ignoring the fact that I'm human,

Have feelings, need support

And so much more.



If it wasn't for you D.H. Lawrence,

Charles Dickens, if it wasn't for

You to believe in and depend on

I'd probably shrivel away into

An even more nothing than

I am now. If it wasn't for

Stealers of Personality and

Confidence, I probably wouldn't

Be writing a depressing poem

Today, and you wouldn't

Be reading one.
