Together, Alone

Together, alone,

the wish

for company,

and yet, I’ll bet

I am not alone

in my desire

to part ways,

the days, not empty,

you tempt me

to call,

problem solved

by my resolve,

we fall,

together, alone.




Shadows whisper their secrets to me,

The night, annotating a poem I feel,

As the river dictates to destiny,

How to make belief in illusion real,

The torn tarot card tells me a story

(And this sceptic must atone,

For you stand before me)

Fresh fish! I cease to be alone.
