Nobody

7am airport breakfast
Busy cafe, eating, drinking
Talking, everyone
Carrying their luggage
Trying to get somewhere.
A man sits at a piano
Entertaining his lament,
his song, a broken
Heart bleeding into keys,
Stopping my appetite
In tears.  Nobody raises up
To the pause in song,
Nobody pauses to feel it
Ache in their bones.
Nobody cries for the lonely
Except the lonely song,
That pulls them deeper
Into their desperate plight.
