a certain aloneness

i feel a certain aloneness
that one might not see

this barren, lonely quietude
so empty, yet tranquil

ingrained in the
hidden recesses of
my mind

at times
stripped, from the feeling
of being connected

a distance overcome
by imagination
as remote as a star

i am calm
though weary

i am peaceful
yet sad

in a valley
so hidden
it beckons
to me

in a dream

dark
clouds
overhead

looking up

from the bottom
of a deep canyon

still hoping

waiting in dark slumber

if i should awaken
from this dream

and cast
away my sorrow

brought by a dream
that would not let me go

and so i wait

and
listen

for the darkness
to become the dawn…
