Solitaire

Coffee for one in the morning,
bed alone in the dark,
stumbling solo along the path that stretches
endlessly before me –
not the life I bargained for!
Some days I fear I will evaporate into nothingness
if I can’t pour something of myself
into the willing heart of another.
The sweet soft touch of a lover, warm breath on my neck,
eyes locking in perfect comprehension,
hands meeting, clasping, releasing and meeting again,
the dance of the spirit that nourishes and renews.
I do not have that – any of it.
I want it;
I need it.
But with whom?
It may be that it is too late.
I shuffle the deck and wonder in the twilight.
