Your Smile

Loneliness visits

when stranded alone

Confirming the emptiness

—lost to bemoan


The darker the moment

the thicker it spreads

To lie and to cover

—my spirit in dread


It blocks every motion

I make to get out

Its shroud to enshadow

—within and without


As somber it tenants

it knows all the while

Its life but a memory

—the moment you smile


(Dreamsleep: May, 2022)
