Poem: Solitude

Updated on August 12, 2010

Softly, like a fallen leaf

My tears fall and gather within the rugged furrows

Of a misfortunate love

That once dispelled Fear and pain

No more did I Disdain sorrow

But rather I sought you within a clouded Ambience

Dispersing newness and sadness together

Within solitude Standing, I stood alone

And felt you within the very core of my being

Oh where are you, my love?

Despised and forgotten I seek you out among

The lost and found that once combined

Joy and gladness to the very meaning of being…

Sorrow I have sought but rather,

I have reneged and turned alone

In solitude, there, with

Nothing but a bewildered memory

Of one who remembers Desire and wholeness

Solace comes and goes, but love stays

And thus I remember you, my heart!

      Thanks George for reading the poem. You're right... inspired by a broken heart (that came to pass).

      Deep and heartfelt; perhaps from a broken heart? Well done.
