Solitude By The Reverie

Written by Line Monique Gauthier |
Published on:



the tiniest sliver of a moon hangs distant

yet its faded heart long gone

it too abandons me tonight


i buried you today


how can i face returning to an empty home

though somehow i’ll have to come to terms

but this night’s for tears freeflowing

and unmedicated throbbing ache left raw



for release of what’s built up inside

the hurt the bitterness the anger

let go of what i can



deep down to the roots of my solitude

haunting gregorian chants fill my head


till finally i’m intoxicated

on visions of nostalgia and reverie
