She

She is alone
standing
waiting
wanting

alone on the summit
that overlooks the sea

in spite of all
in spite of love
she will take and give with her tenderness

sometimes she is not glad to live

she is alone
as though she is perched on the highest peak of the tired gray world

around her only snow swirling swirling swirling
above her endless space unfurled unfurled unfurled

below her , ever-stretching sea that churns churns churns the pain deep inside.


only she survives, and only she can be testament to those who are not lonely but having only died.

is she actually dead or is she merely dead inside?
