A/N: Written on January 16, 2012.


The silence grew so loud
That I could not think.
The tears escaped,
One
By one.
My heart
In an iron vise
Cried out for relief.
I was alone.
Soul-drifting,
Mind-falling,
Hope-abandoning
Alone.

The silence has faded.
The tears are
In place.
Yet…
I am alone.
Soul-drifting,
Mind-falling,
Hope-abandoning
Alone.
I am a ship
Afloat.
Lost at sea,
In search of my
Anchor.
