Brideshead Revisited

I know what it feels like
To be all alone,
To be that great unique
That is Sebastian's goal.

I know what it feels like
To be single in a crowd,
To struggle contra mundum
And give Aloysius all your love.

I know what it feels like
To wish for escape,
To need the solidarity
Of a goose formation in Flyte.

This is a different work for me. It take references from my favorite character in one of my favorite books. Right now, I'm feeling a lot like he does, although I'm not yet driven to strawberries and the family champagne. Read the book and you'll know what I mean.
I used to write a lot of poetry, and lately I've been alone enough to start it again. I'm sure it's not the end.
