* IN SOLITUDE


A glass of red wine spent
Recalling life's events
Crowded in my skin
In Solitude

Relishing a melody of lament
Drifting through my window
Gliding in uninvited
In solitude

Last night I cried out loud
Just to hear a sound
Though I did not hear me
In solitude

Drowning in my naked fear of
Living a life unseen
Yearning to belong
In solitude

I woke up in the evening
Read a book out loud
My voice wavering
In solitude


As the heroine yearned
In crowded isolation
To be loved
In solitude

I walked naked
In my new home
My skin in flames
In solitude

Every molecule of air
Brushing against me
Impaired my being
In solitude

It was raining that morn
When I came to life
My throat stinging
In solitude

I mourn not waking up
Next to my beloved
To warm my frozen hind
In solitude

I see no soul
I hear no breathing
I smell no skin
In solitude

I carry your imprint
Buried deep within me
And life goes on
In solitude

The hour yet bears for thee and me

If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
