Maybe I am not all alone
by Aneesha Myles
Somewhere there is a heart that bleeds that mine
A soul that feels the same sense of solitude
An eye that sheds a similar unseen tear
A cry that shreds the sky and is still unheard.
Maybe there is a look somewhere
That longs to be reciprocated with love
A smile that does not want to be washed ashore
A feeling of happiness that wants to linger alone
A desire to walk in stride with the world.
Maybe there is an echoing silence
That wants to break loose of its fetters
An unspoken word that wants to be heard
A desperation that needs a shoulder to cry on
A loneliness that wishes no more to be alone.
Maybe a similar feeling engulfs someone
With a heart enwrapped in its own sorrow
A soul confined in its solitude
A tear blinds itself to the other
A cry deafened by its own echo.
Maybe someday the shells will be broken
And loneliness in each heart buried deep
With the smiles being reciprocated
And love striking the chords of each heart
And me walking hand in hand with the One.
