A Dark, Faraway Place

He sat there…

In the echo
Of any empty heart.

Silence
Pounding
A crescendo
Of pain
Into his
Wounded mind
And hurting soul.

Every word
He tried to form
Was choked in his throat
By the devil of
Loneliness.

He sat there…

In a dark, faraway place.

Struggling to breathe,

Struggling to hope,

Struggling to survive…

Longing

For a day

And chance,

To meet the one
Woman…

The one woman
To save him.

The one,

Bringing him back…

Back to light,

Back to life,

Back to love.
