Submitted love poem


A poem of loneliness

Sorrow touches me

Sorrow at my loneliness

For want of another soul

To make me whole

Plumbing the depths of despair

In search of that missing piece

That will banish sorrow forever

But fail in that endeavour

Finding solace is always just out of reach

An outstretched hand away

There simply for the taking

Then I’m left aching

What was seemingly solid and tangible

Evaporated into the ether

So I will begin again tomorrow

The search for the end of sorrow
