Loneliness Caught Me

Loneliness caught me in the corridor.

My dearest Friend was gone.

Would my colleague,

walking close behind me,

notice my tears?

Would she say a kind word?

Console me?

I was alone in this building,

I was alone everywhere

now that my friend was gone.

Sorrow so great

I wept in my sleep.

The ache of loss

a sunken treasure

too deep to recover.

Where was the one

I longed for?

The depth of yearning

all out of proportion

to pining for a human soul.

Enfold me,

I beseeched,

let me dwell forever

in love your pure
