Solitary Heart


Inside the moving throng
in the city thatís alive
Lives a solitary heart
struggling to survive

More alone than if I was
on a mountain peak
millions of faces around me
but not the face I seek

Listen to the laughter
the sounds of joy abound
muffled through the barrier
of the pain that I have found

I nod to strangers occasionally
but seldom meet their eyes
in this mass of humanity
no one hears my lonely sighs


*Inspired by Ron's comment about the solitary life of a big city as compared to the Himalayas. Thanks Ron

PdV,
That is a haunting and well written write. Hey from a Phoenician.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

Sharon~
I know this feeling very well, my friend.
It's never easy feeling alone in a crowd,
and not being able to find that one special face.
I've looked at a LOT of faces over the years,
but I'm still looking for THE face.
Beautifully penned, my friend.
Glad you shared this.  
Hugs,
~Vicky

I'm glad you give sanctuary its heart, Sharon.
