I am of solitaire


In the comfort of my
      not so comfortable
chair, in this tiny
     cold cluttered room,
windy howls and
        talk about on the ABC
            broadcast interrupts
        my thoughts
   I glare at my shadow
      projected upon the
                     bland wall
      no face or expression
               but  the strands of my hair
                   jutting out flimsy
          gossamer-like strands

of dry-stone
   built without mortar I'm weak


        only my shadow is solid
    existing
          without feeling
               oh how I yearn to
       be that shadow
                  where blood flows
               not through me
        or over me
  skinless and without pain

a jewel delicately set
     into this argent world
to sparkle and shine…
        but I am of
              solitaire…..

                      alone.


Dark Angel
2000

DarkAngel~
This is so aesthetically pleasing to the eye and tucked in among the bends ... the haunting refrain .. 'alone'.

Hon, this is just awesome.
And you are surely not alone ....
you keep company with a marvelous muse.
Love ya'

Dark Angel,

I see you have reached deep within to produce such powerfully sad words.  Please know, you are never alone my friend.  We are here for you...always.  Great writing!
