NEED
 
This endless need
of what?
She does not know,
but everyday
the need
still grows..
 
It grips her,
with its steel trap
hand.
And holds her
in its boundless
land.
 
Over fields and hills
and streams
carries the echo
of her
silent screams....
 
The wind
it whispers
and calls her name,
beconing
through the tears
and shame..
 
She reaches out
into the night,
like a bird
that never
takes to flight...

BLAME
 
You closed the door,
emotionless
and
cold.
Bitterness surrounds,
so that you can't see,
casting shrouds of pain
to all that come near..
Your eyes look through me
as if I were not here
emotions roar through me
that, I can't take...
I've hated me for hating you..
Blame is your weapon
and your wound,
your soul can't heal
what your heart won't see
as you throw away
everything
till nothing is left
and your
all alone....

Walking with lonliness...
 
A lost
and
wounded soul
walks hand in hand
with lonliness
dancing through
the days
ever retreating
hiding
from hurt
and sorrow
lost to
joy and
beauty
they are buried beneath
rubble
of resentment,
regrets ,
and lost faith
effortlessly
lonliness
embraces.
