Solitude’s Brooding Despondency


have you ever known love

then cast the first stone

dead leaves wind-blown?

have you ever been alone

felt the need to atone

that cuts to the bone

while your sorrow has grown?

have you ever just flown

abandoned the safety zone

your life’s work overthrown?

cannot live with depression

deadly dreams harsh distress

desiring the empty death

have you never known love?
