Sitting here in cyberland
in my lonely nothingness
seeking solace with strangers
searching for one true heart

Stolen moments of laughter
mixed with painful pleading
Physically she pulls you from me
night after night

I cry in my surrender
to the sorrow of not being
and yet cannot withdraw
from this connection to you

Seeing the love in your words
Hearing tenderness in your phrases
Sure that this was meant to be
and afraid that it was not

But in the end
the truth will always rule my mind
And watching you smile
makes my life worthwhile

O DeVine One,
If they started paying you for this tomorrow you'd be a millionaire today.  

Of course, you're already rich...in spirit.

Sharon-
What an answer for the challenge.
No wonder the rest of us are hanging back.
Such a beautiful poem.

Just beautiful, plain and simply divine
Omen est Nomen, The name is the sign
Sad it is a little bit but so well written
I love it

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

This is very good.  It is well noted that it started off positive, then negative, then positive.  What a great way to end, only if all things end like that
GOOD JOB!
