I Cried Out And No One Answered

I cried out and no one answered.
I sought yet never found.
I gave myself unto thee.
And was crushed upon the ground.

My dreams once were vivid.
My soul a ray of light.
Now I stand alone and lost.
Wandering blindly in the night.

I hold my hand outstretched.
Waiting for a reassuring touch.
Hope now is fading.
Why did I expect so much?

I close my eyes to rest.
Hoping for some peace at last.
My heart forever broken.
Dwelled too long in the past.

Succinct, piercing, a deep glimpse behind the veil. Beautifully done.
