Alone Again (Naturally)

In a little while from now,
If I’m not feeling any less sour
I promised myself to treat myself
And visit a nearby tower,
And climbing to the top,
Will throw myself off
In an effort to make it clear to who
Ever what it’s like when your shattered
Left standing in the lurch, at a church
Where people ‘re saying,
“My God that’s tough, she stood him up!
No point in us remaining.
May as well go home.”
As I did on my own,
Alone again, naturally

– Gilbert O’Sullivan, Alone Again (Naturally), 1972

  1. Suicide is never the answer is a selfish way to ends one’s problems and create others for the ones left behind.

  2. For some reason I’m always surprised when you get all mature and introspective. Not that I don’t like it, I do indeed. It just leaves me plesantly surprised.
