Tortured Soul

The emptiness-the aloneness
Disconnected from that special bond

With another human being can be
Is totally overwhelming
Debilitating-all consuming

No one to turn to
For light conversation

Deep-thought provoking verbiage
Important issues
That understanding nod

The wordless communication
When eyes met

The touch
The physical touch
The lack of it

Rips apart a tortured soul
Images of that touch on another

Bringing her
Feeding her
Loving her

Not me
Never me

Only a brief moment in time
A mere wisp of a breath of Happiness
A glimpse into a life denied again

Pain of loss
Heartache unimaginable

Seeking oblivion Seeking peace
