Solitary

So alone
in a crowd of people
Emptied out by life’s
mishaps
Extending fragile arms out
to strangers and the knowing
yet
no one
grasps back

Arms limped from exhaustion
Eyes bland from despair
Voice erased
No one hears the screaming

Alone in the dark at day break and
day end
trying to find the way in a thick fog
without a flashlight in hand

Waiting patiently
Desperately
Until eyes are glazed with happiness
instead of sorrow
and the sun is visible with my heart

Solitary
