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.
