Alone Together
By John Watts

 

Alone together

We are alone together

 

Beyond the hidden divide voices echo

Our calls repeat and repeat

Here I am

Here am I

 

Shrouded in dreams

Silence deafens our souls

Muting walls defy grasping hands

 

Alone together

Concealed in reverie we hide

Cloaked in delusions we wait for recognition

 

The divide

The invisible membrane

Crusting over gentle spirits

Shielding hearts from sharpened blades

 

Alone together we cower

Waiting for another to peel the away the skin

Revealing innocence enveloped with generations of venom

 

Alone together

We are alone together

Marching in ordered cadence

Uniformed in family, race, religion, gender

 

Veneered humanity colliding shield to shield

Repelling desperate soul from desperate soul

With instinctive gestures born of fear

 

Alone together

We are alone together

Thanks Tim.  This poem is born of frustration over the war in Iraq and all the rest of the insanity around us.
