---Solitude ---
~
Looking across the dreary expanse
That was the bleak morning sky
Brought to mind thoughts of you.
~
In that vast skyscape filled with
The gray clouds that signaled gloom,
There was a break, a brief break.
~
A break in the gloom that liberated
Your brilliant light to blaze upon
My soul like nothing before or since.
~
Even as the glow warmed through to
My soul, thawed my once frigid heart, I knew
That the break would be painfully short.
~
My joy was tempered by the sight of the
Dreary clouds slowly engulfing the light. In
What seemed like a moment, the light was gone.
~
Now as I look across the sky, I see no more
Breaks in this gloom, it goes to the end of
The horizon, as far as the heart can see,
There is Solitude.

I agree with Sunshine....very haunting.
