shared solitude: sunset beach by 

July 2011
finepoint sharpie on paper

Seated together on a lonely beach
Silent in shared solitude
No word need be exchanged
and in the space between them
… a deep sorrow expands the sense of distance
So that an arm’s span becomes
an unpassable chasm
There can be nothing beyond this point –
… no touch, no connection
No bridge between their sould
They must find solace in the brief moment
but partaking in shared solitude


love, hate, distance, loneliness, separation, ocean, sunset, disappointment, romance, creative writing, poetry, illustrated poetry
