Loneliness - Poem by Sara E. Pratte

naked and cornered
moon shines through
a dusty window
stars peek into
cracks

tears trace
his face
blind rain falls
and wish to wake
and believe in dreams

the narrow path
a test
the sky breaks
pounding prevails
lonely smoke lingers

desperation and despair
moan
cries rise
ricochet in the room
his frail fetal form

will come again
slightly tap tapping his cane
