Solitary Sonzal

Whose voice was that, here, where I lie alone?
Look at you, said Eros. Scared, shy, alone.

I dreamt my dreaming of you
Brought us together.
I love you as only dust can love you.
I dreamt us swept up on a gust together.
I alone have vanished. Look above you:
Nothing and nothing, thrust together.
                                                                                                                                Breather of secrets,
                                                                                                                                      Do I sigh alone?
                                                                                                                 I fear love. But I fear regret.
                                                                                                            I made you, said Eros. I alone.

                                                                                                                Cautious men die old, Amit.
                                                                                                                               They also die alone.
