Alone

 

 

You ever hear the thunder’s roll,

From underfoot, not way up high?

The howling silence – hunter’s call,

This knowing sound; his prey will die,

By his hand alone.

 

 

You might have felt a winter’s cold,

Duration of a fear untold,

A quickened heartbeat – tale untold,

The waiting game, your heart dethroned,

By your own hand unsown.

 

 

Have you passed death’s corridor?

A breath away, new emptiness,

Been crawling nearer – fury’s floor,

Found drowning hard in pain’s shallowness,

To all their eyes unknown.

 

 

A quiver still, just as you thought,

The undertow as fighting ground,

A constant aching, left distraught,

Your frozen pulse – no turning round,

A heart here aches alone.

 

 

Now I can’t see the rolling flame,

Can’t derive this burning shame,

I see the meanings in your lie,

Still won’t believe these tears you’ve cried,

I bear this name; Alone.
