loneliness

~Loneliness~

This loneliness lingers
within my heart. Not longing;
but a deep and venerable ache…

Life’s push and pull,
like moon’s sweet embrace,
Turns me inside out;

And I am left holding my own light
Within my own dark night….

-Yet I cannot ask that which is not mine-

So I linger quietly and watch
as each petal upon the flower
my heart resides falls silently to the floor.

And within the shadow of my
Solitude, I learn that I must embrace
That which lies within me more
