295 The Lonely Heart [19 April 2000]

She rises from a slumber
ten thousand years long
to face the world
as she is.
Lonely, lost, despairing.
Death seems close
around that next corner.
She still searches
for that thing
that one emotion
that would make her whole,
fill her with purpose.
Her young days
long behind her,
yet still
the thirst unquenched.
As her last breath
she lifted her head to the stars
screaming for all to hear
the sorrow of her incomplete soul.
Love, where are you?
