Lonely

Lost her husband seven years ago.

Carried on escaping the loneliness by buying scratch tickets.

Moved to an apartment and was less lonely.

Alone at night feeling sad.

Met a guy who took her out for  walks, talk and food.

Started to lose her memory and became angry.

Lashed out at others.

The guy left, daughters turned their backs on her.

Went bankrupt and felt lonely without money.

Pushing people away that want to help.

Is creating an environment of loneliness.

Want to help, but it is seen as interference.

Blames us for being lonely.
