Loneliness

Loneliness

The silence in your gaze
Tells me a truth
I have no desire to embrace.

I look away
Even as you stare my way
Feigning ignorance
O tears Stay!
O Ache Away!
Clutch not at my soul
I wish still
To love her some more.

I now being blind wont
Silence her stirrings for too long
But I want just some time
For my soul
The strength to find;
To face the death of my love
The pathos
Of a loveless life.

I see you coming my way
I feel the winter in your stare
I tell myself “do not cry”
“Do not even say goodbye”
But the tremors
Do not wait
To hear you say
“I’m going away”
And, suddenly, I find I can’t
Remember even my own name;
Thru the crying, the sobbing
—Oh the pain


I pray someday I live again
I pray someday I smile again
But for now I must endure;
Each moment of this tragedy…
Each ounce of this gore;
In dark corners of silent rooms
In somber shadow’s of betrayals’ gloom.
