RoseAnn V. Shawiak
Sky Of Abandonment
Settled into a moment of despair, crying within, casting about
shadows, searching for a hole to crawl into.
Watching the world, never letting go, never catching up to it.
Wallowing in self-pity, reluctant to move about and find another niche.
Instead, being a part of the walls I find myself encased in.
Loneliness hanging like ivy upon my heart and soul.
Wondering at the mirth of people passing by, awed by happiness staring
from their faces.
Concerned not with any circumstances in the future, heart barely
beating with saddened music of life.
Staring out across vast expanses of destiny, knowing that fate is
playing it's part well while holding onto the deepest despair anyone
can find in life.
Watchful eye, discerning mind, catapulted into skies of abandonment,
sanctioned there forever in a spiral of lonely despair.
