Melpomene's Tears

Alone - Poem by Melpomene's Tears

On a starless night
when the cold wind howls and bites
when leaves fly and scatter away
I walk alone
the road is empty, my footsteps in echo
the trees dance an ancient dance with the wind
I walk alone
the sea crashes against the shore
venting her fury against the rocks
I walk on, alone
waves of fury beating my soul
the clouds turn dark with anger
I walk alone
thunder shouts his rage across the dark sky
lighting burns herself in seething rage
I walk alone
cold rain pelts me down in helpless passion
drenching me to the dark depths of my soul
I walk on, alone
betrayal hurts more than an arrow
pierced thru the beating heart
we used to walk together,
hand in hand,
heart in heart,
I walk alone.

    a cold rain and cold heart go together so well
    the rain washes pure the stain of love lost
    the cold numbs the pain so you can't feel it
    anymore The lightning enables you to see
    and thunder shakes the soul free
