Poetry is a clear window into the heart. I often write to express the thoughts and emotions inside me--not knowing what will appear on the page but invariably discovering more about myself and the world around me.

Lonely

Posted Friday, August 10, 2012

You live
You cope
You survive

I see you
In your cars
On your benches
In the park
Walking to the train

No smiles
No joy
Missing friendship
Going where?
Creating what?

My heart breaks
For you
Wonders why
Why do you keep doing it?
Day after lonely day

You certainly know how
To persevere
Good for you!
Lesson learned!

Now try this:
Break free!
Dream!
Run towards life!
Now!
