Loneliness

Written by: Greta Robinson

Hiding in a lake of tears
lie the dreams of those
whose pale, wan faces
are reflected 
in its subtle waters.

On moonlit nights,
when covetous thoughts
weave a silent web of fear
love songs are empty 
to the solitary ear.

Uncanny, the billowing shadows
that haunt the souls 
of the lost and lonely
whose tears go unnoticed
who surrender to the void.
