alone


don’t know why but today
my soul hovers not
and the wind is calm
we sit next to each other

emptiness walks by, we wave
it takes a seat next to my soul
it chatters with the wind
but not with me

i ask...emptiness, why do
you sit next to me? but no words
are exchanged...it ignores me
so I sit alone

my heart beats, tethered
by subtle and quiet
it’s beat not heard amidst
the hovering of other souls

my heart aches recalling the tears
shed of life’s disdains and all
the telling of angry words
captured in its chambers

is this the way it must be
for days to come
only the wind and emptiness
to sit next to me?
