– Ponies with Tristania

[Click here for the accompanying song]

Solitude Feast

Balloons, streamers,
Pastries left marred
Candlelit the night
For a party of lone reject

Her treats denied
Dismissed behind her back
They left her out
Upset she lies, caters the fest
In solitude
Abandoned she feasts

Once friends
They liked her, enjoyed her games and plays
Like leper now
Those backstabbers, liars,
Cowards, avoid her…

Alone you're left…
alone you're left… alone you're left…
alone you're left… alone you're left…
"Why won't they care… without my friends… I've nothing left…"
…Alone you're left… you empty soul… alone you're left… you worthless soul…

To fill the emptiness
She feigns the pain inside
Aching heart caters the fest
With puppet plays
Abandoned she feasts

Now castaway escapes
Within her mind, away from world she hides
Hollow sacks
Objects keep her company
Feast in solitude

Alone you're left… you empty soul… you worthless soul…
Alone you're left… you empty soul… you've nothing left.

Based on Tristania’s song Shadowman.

Pinkie’s mental breakdown in “Party of One” is thus far my favorite scene in MLP FiM. It’s both funny and creepy delivery, but most of all underneath that it’s emotionally surprisingly strong, even shocking. The one pony you wouldn’t expect to break suddenly falls apart in fear of abandonment, when her friends appear to simply discard her without explanation. One scene giving Pinkie characterization worth the whole season. Also, Pinkie Pie is my favorite pony and every time I see her turn all Pinkamena I just want give her a hug so badly.
And no, this is by no means supposed to be PsychoPie material. I haven't read Cupcakes and never will. (I follow the comic)

Also, I managed to include the word “leper” here. I’ve waited the chance to use it one way or another since Part V of The Discordant Tale. Now I can die satisfied. :icondignitylaughplz: Yes, I’m a sick little man.

Song is used as a soundtrack for the lyrical content in terms of tribute, homage, parody and ponies.
Getting a permission for thumbnail took a while, but was totally worth it. Image this time is "Imaginary Friendship" [link] by the one and only :iconjohnjoseco:

Awesome poem! This just helps my theory that 'Pinkie's Breakdown' in Party Of One is one of the scenes that fans respond to most. I AM SMART! 8^) But, uh yeah, great poem!

Yeah, it's the scenes like PoO that leave the real impact, in-between all the memes and gags and ascended background ponies ^^
Thanksies :iconpinkiecuteplz:
