Loneliness: A Poem


My heart beats

With the intensity of a maelstrom,

Pounding away at this empty ache,

Demanding to be filled, demanding

To be held


A presence left absent like

A pebble on the seashore, small,

Insignificant, cold; it aches like a hurricane

Ripping apart a tumult inside,

Tearing out my heart and tossing it

To the wind, only to be caught again

In your hands.
