Lonely Freedom by Jasen Sousa

Lonely Freedom

I walk to the local store,
swing in and out of a sea of people.
Neon lights Photoshop paint me.

The pizzeria oven open, not done yet,
and the sinking of skateboard wheels
in and out of the sidewalk cracks.

Even inside a city I have lived all my life,
everyone is a stranger
because my friends are hidden

somewhere behind dark windows
going to sleep with their shadows, secrets,

and I the free man

am lonelier than ever.
