Loneliness - Poem by Moffat Mbuzi

Without permission loneliness visited
and settled in my heart,
So cruel to the heart it took over control,
It made me envy other souls with mates.
For mine hasen't one to care for;

I sleep with my heart awake,
I dream the dreams of sorrow,
I scream in the middle of the night.
And I wake but only to find myself without nobody,

Is my soul a kind of a soul without a mate?
No one to love and nobody to love me,
I watch and behold pairs of lovers strolling
My eyes drown in sympathy;
I cry in total silence.

I need some one to care for,
And to be cared for,
Someone I can call my own,
How long shall i keep on waiting?

    Keep on waiting. You will find a soul mate soon. Like lonliness the soul mate also does not seek permission...... A wonderful write, Moffat. I really enjoyed it.

    Best Wishes
