Desolate Souls

Sitting in this empty space surrounded by the stars so far above

Thinking of the days passed by with little to no connections

Favored by none connected to the dust that sweeps by in the wind

Considered to be gone without the chance to reform my image




Staring into the night like an owl stares into the darkness of night

Searching for something to allow the smile inside to be seen 

Praying to the heavens to notice my existence along with prayers

Crying behind the eyes of blue begging to be noticed by passer by's



Secure in my emotions to move in the direction of love

Sacrificing even the littlest of habits that turn those away

Forgiving not only my own soul for believing in future romance

Lazily I lay in the grass staring into the darkness of emptiness



As I long to be loved, to be held, just to be alive in someone else's dreams but my own

I think of the consequences of giving up the security of loneliness

The possibilities of never regaining the peace and serenity I feel right now

It'd be so worth the love that could cure this desolate soul

This is definitely a heartfelt piece. I take it your were writing this in the throes of despair?

Actually no. I was asked by my publisher to write a poem for the title of the book. That's how I came up with the words.
