Loneliness engulfs him
consumes him
like an arsons match
he ignites the bond
setting their relationship ablaze
now...that foundation
simply reduced to a pile of ash
in a distant haze

Loneliness entangles him
weaves thru him
like diseased roots of an aging tree
they wrap around his feelings
squeeze out emotion
and eventually choke the life
out of his reality

Loneliness is his soulmate
and for all the years
joined together by selfishness and fate
at the expence
of someone else's tears
now, as the years drip away
they quietly disappear
leaving no trace
but landing ever so gently
and all to clearly
upon his lonely artificial face
though it's not by choice
that this partnership remains
but as a cruel reminder
of a love lost
and a heart tragically stained...

    You second stanza really blew me away, there was some great images and word use here! A well crafted and penned poem. This is definitely going into my faves. Deep emotions in here, off to read some more. Hope you Halloween was well. --Madison Thomer

    and do not think I am a great poetic, ah, no, I am meerly possessed and consumed and time after time I fail here, deepth and intricacy, and truth are seldom easy to hear and less often commented on, and even less often cherished, but it is you who are too kind to say, you do hear me & that to means alot. Light & Love
