Solo

By 14th January 2010December 9th, 2019No Comments

I am the one
Who sat upon
The highest cliff
Reaching out
To the loudest waves,
When a man approached me
Smiling,
Though his eyes were sad
He needed someone to talk to,
I did not acknowledge him,
It was at that moment
A tear drop crept from his eye,
Falling and crashing deep into the waves
He followed,
Leaving no trace
When he jumped into the waves,
Silence clung
Like a glove,
All I could feel was his pain
Around my heart
Still…
I remain solo
