I Howl Alone

loneliness spills over my lips my sight smeared, my tongue slows emptiness surrounds me some part of me is missing my wings lift, then fail I cry out, “where are you?!” “hear my soul-yearn!” I lift my barren pen it sinks beneath heavy waves tossing and turning, I search for any flotsam a raft of […]
