Louis Gibbs

THE SURVIVOR

Torn from the stars

Made blind to his vision

So not to break his heart,

He wonders and wanders;

 

This lonely solo survivor

Of two old souls in tandem

Come once again to observe

And share their earth experience.

 

Yet as madness's encroachment

Confirms his heart's knowing,

It's a journey not intended

To be suffered solitarily.

 

So far from home ...

So painfully alone.

    A powerful write, Louis. Those last two lines convey so much emotion; the separation of these two souls is deeply felt. I am sorry for your loss, which I am assuming by both the write & the author notes. Thinking of you, my friend.

    • Louis Gibbs

      Thank you for your good and insightful reply, Santi, as only you consistently make. The separation changed my life, to put it mildly, which I suspect was our plan coming in. Your sensitive old soul is greatly appreciated, wise one!
