Solitude Finished
Author: Scorpio

vinebar

Bearing its own will
I stand alone
Stranded; broken
Forgotten, on my own

I am just a window
Something you see through
If only you saw me
How I could see you

But now it's solitude
My only friend
It's only solitude
Unto my sorrowed end

Nothing's unbroken
Nothing's untouched
But with solitude
Reality, I've clutched

These shadows constrict
Imaginary fears
I thought I needed you
To clear these tears

I am just a window
Something you see through
If only you saw me
How I could see you

But now it's solitude
My only friend
It's only solitude
Unto my sorrowed end

Nothing's unbroken
Nothing's untouched
But with solitude
Reality, I've clutched

All these years
Sacrificing for you
Now you've left me stranded
With nothing left to do

There is only one true friend
One true peace
Solitude, it's you
With you, I'm at ease

But now it's solitude
My only friend
It's only solitude
Unto my sorrowed end

Nothing's unbroken
Nothing's untouched
But with solitude
Reality, I've clutched

------- Author's Notes -------

This is the finished version of my poetic song, Solitude. I'd appreciate any feedback, because it's my first song and whatnot. But.. Yeah. Enjoy.

Profound words!

Very deep Scorpio! And, I hope you keep working at songwriting, because your chorus, lines, 9-16, 25-32, and 41-48, is very well stated.... And your three verses speak more than the tongue.... There's definitely nothing wrong with going through life alone.... Yep, this song reminds me of soul and self searching.... When you can find yourself, when no one's around.... Being alone, in your secret closet, where no one hears you, when you can cry out.... ahhhh.... solitude, there's nothing like it! I love your song! It holds true meaning! Keep the faith Scorpio!
Clutching on to Solitude for dear life, is beyond excellent! I greatly enjoyed it!

Hope to see a CD of yours coming out soon Scorpio!
And thank you for the congratulatory comment on my poem, "Graduate".... It was greatly appreciated!

Alright then,
Smiles,
Meridian

Thank You

Each is separated into its verses and whatnot. But I took all the "[VERSE 1] [BRIDGE] [CHORUS]" things out since it is poetic as well and not to be looked upon fully as a song on here. I never meant it to be much, but I'm glad with how it turned out. The melody keeps changing for me though, I just need a solid base of how I want it to be. But yes, solitude is wonderful. Thank you so much. :)

I wish I could make a CD, but the only chance I had, I sort of.. Blew it. ><
And youre very much welcome! It was a wonderful poem to read!

Smiles in Return,
Scorpio
