Solitude

Solitude short poem

Photo by bandita 

Oh! Solitude don’t you stare, stop- will you?
Solitude at times stares hard at you,
It’s hard to swallow what’s true.
distances between hearts,
soar miles apart.
Oh! Solitude don’t you stare, stop- will you?
You see someone go far away.
you know they’ll never cross your way…
& you feel life’s futile and vain.
Oh! Solitude you are but a pain!
Oh! Solitude don’t you stare, stop- will you?
In the depth of your heart,
dreams shatter, you are torn apart.
happiness seems to evade,
you are desolate and grayed.
Oh! Solitude don’t you stare, stop- will you?
Desires failed, eyes filled with tears,
trampled by unknown fears.
with a heavy heart,
you know you’ll have to restart.
Oh! Solitude don’t you stare, stop- will you?

Sweet aching sounds come From an unknown land, Breaking the organised chords of life; They enter into pure soul. This sound that was once the melody, The motion which afforded the paused breath A dancing life like a mermaid And
