The dusk before the dawn...

With a throbbing ache, and that sweetness of your embrace,
I walk through the moonlit path,
besides the lonesome waters, I ask for an empath,
who gazes into my eyes, with that crispiness and delight,
that renders your trusted soul naked, loved and surprised.

Amidst a thousand faces, I find no familiarity,
only expressions of the unknown, trying to grow on me like moss on stone,
but no matter how hard they try, I cannot blend,
for a stone stands solitarily, even after the moss is washed away.

The raging fires dance, with a tainted macabre sense of style,
with efficacious animosity, they await my onset,
they wish to melt me, to diminish my angsty equanimity,
but they're unaware, that a stone, no matter in what state, is a stone all along.

The woods entreat me to stop, and reverse my footsteps,
they implore me to transform myself inside out,
but the surreptitious phoenix in me, will obey no one,
there is no looking back now, I have to move forward.

And yet, the reflection in the rippled water, is not my own,
the soul within is rented, the stranger stares blankly at me,
the camaraderie has evaporated, the connection is lost,
magic is upset, hostile eyes stare at me.

And so I wait, for the day to come, when the stranger in me
feels familiar, feels like 'my own',
when I can smile at my reflection, and recognize those eyes,
I will feel happiness, I will no longer feel the world of lies.

  6. You capture a sense of aloneness.

  7. thoughtful.

    well expressed sentiments, what a splash.

  8. Aren't we all looking for an empath? Something to believe in, in a world of deception. The way we deliberately hurt ourselves/deceive ourselves its no wonder we end up lashing out at others in our pain. Anytime we see anything of our own reflection we become fearful and fear leads to aggression. Its a noble goal seeking to know yourself, its a lifelong process. Good look on your journey! You have expressed yourself beautifully here, I know well what its like being a loner
