Alone - Poem by Josefine Carrion

loneliness took her by the hand,
it wondered
how did you get here,
seen and loved,
found then lost?
the cowardice of your pride,
the shame;
the safety of your wall,
the shield
the mystery and the misery;
to fight is futile.

so unfair
to be judged then blamed;
the bittersweet confusion,
wrapped in darkness.

he then sees her, it is unusual;
she then feels him, it is denied.
his ignorance was such,
nightmares arose games for the blind.

and all he did was listen.
his subtle words,
to laugh, love, live;
such disappointment…

to breathe into her soul
to bring death to life
she’d welcome
either way

he knows why she stayed,
she knows why he left…

their timing was off.

finally, loneliness knew why
and let her be.
