Alone With It...a poem by annienomad-cyberpoet

 
 
Alone With It
(by annienomad-cyberpoet)

When you’ve searched for a truth
that cannot be found
And life has forced your feet
back on the ground


Or you find out the hard way
that love isn’t a get
And your gambler’s heart
has lost its bet


These are the tears we finally shed
when we find ourselves
at last
…alone with it


Some reach for the sky
and snag the gold
Choosing to put their whole lives
on hold


Grabbing the prize
for which they were meant
Only to find later they’re
…alone with it


Some of us falter
ashamed and afraid
Fear has a price
the forgotten have paid


But there’s a truth in the lie
which we must not forget
Love means
you’ll never again be
…alone with it
