Beneath Cold Dead Skies............


Lies the solitude of self
lies the self of worthlessness
in darkness where no loving soul travels........
I see stars .....all of them!
And there in the January sky
the wolf moon.......
I wish just once she would show..........
Her ....the one I wanted all of my life
Oh I dreamed of her everywhere .......
I saw her in dreams mostly
at all of times
And need her ........
I always needed her
whoever she was ........
And now?........What now
I don't care anymore ........

Does she ?

Yes I do care Ahorseback! Oh what a beautiful piece. The tranquility of it yet the underlying wantonness and pain, makes it even more beautiful.

Cardisa Sometimes , now at least , I can't believe how much I yearned in youth and later too, for something , someone , to save me . In my unhappiness I looked for it to come from outside of me! Not truely understanding that it had to and has to come from within. Just knowing that now is a good thing ......Thank you for understanding .......:-}

You are as beautiful as this poem. You have also managed to convey your feelings in a way which we all can relate to. Marvelous! I love "the wolf moon". Rated up and am a fan forever:)

Aha ahorseback, You should have told her, oh, i forgot, you didn't know her. This sounds silly, but it rings true. We've all longed for something before we found us. Thank you. this is longingly beautiful.

It does have to come from inside as you wrote. And once thats realized the worry, pain and and anxiousness begins to fall from the mind and spirit like leaves in an autumn's breeze. always exploring says it best-longingly beautiful.
