Recluse

Recluse short poem

Alone I sit in dark and cold,
so much around,yet nothing to hold.

The light beckons me

The honest feelings
Spent on deceitful dealings.

Stumble over a shattered dream
and pain that made me scream.

Missing are my emotions
which once swelled like oceans
At a time I was alive,
now I just survive.

Alone I sit in dark and cold,
so much around, yet nothing to hold.
