THE FLAME OF A LONELY WOMAN


Secretly, the flame of a lonely woman burns sweetly, giving warmth only to the man who observes her feminine enchantments with a love song in his heart.

Every mountain and valley in the willows of life can hear her whispers for love and know the kind of romanticism she dreams of among lonesome darkness.

The vocabulary of love she speaks is of a deep silence and contains passionate words only a sincere and caring lover can understand.

With each tryst they share, he stores her soft, tender kisses in a trove deep within his soul.

Sadly, falling tears sometimes blur her vision of blooming flowers willing to dance for her with the gentle breeze.

In this journey of life, the flame of a lonely woman gives light to the heart understanding her needs while igniting his fire with the first kiss of sweet surrender.

  1. We're born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we're not alone.

    There is an indisputable difference between being lonely,and being alone; however with this said there is a poignant beauty in this particular poem,this line...

    In the willows of life, every mountain and valley can hear her whisper for love and know the kind of romanticism she dreams of, among lonesome darkness.

    Your poetry must be read over and over again to appreciate all that is beautiful in the written word.It's exactly why so many of us choose to read and write poetry ourselves,and embrace your work Andy.

  2. My dear Ariana, I am revisiting some older posts and came across this one. Hence the long delay in replying...I'm sorry!

    I agree there is a distinct difference in being lonely and being alone. Not sure I'd want to be either, but sometimes life and circumstances are not fair.

    My initial interpretation of my poems can also be totally different upon re-reading. Don't know if this is a good or bad thing. That's why I welcome reader feedback.

    As always, thank you for your appreciation of my work & your comments. Good or bad, I'm inspired to continue writing.

  9. Andy, my husband heard my words of loneliness and that is how we met and eventually got married. He is a wonderful man and is able to hear the 'unspoken' words I say. Thank you for sharing such a beautiful post!

  12. In this increasingly gadgety world, we consume so many things to save our time and yet what we get is the opposite. We dont have time for solitude anymore and so we stop caring about ourselves or the others..your poem beautifully conveys the insights which can develop after some serious solitude ! I always pause on your blog to explore so many shades of love !!! thanks for sharing Andy.

  13. Loneliness is part of being human. It reminds us that we are not complete in ourselves.
    David Runcorn
    There is the solitude of suffering, when you go through darkness that is lonely, intense, and terrible. Words become powerless to express your pain; what others hear from your words is so distant and different from what you are actually suffering.
    I have chosen my life now,as to be alone,and at times it really depresses me,but it was my choice.
    Your words have moved me Andy,and I think this one is one of your best...
    Lots of love always...

    1. My beautiful and dear friend Alpana,
      Your words are always so deep, moving and inspirational. I have to agree with all that you have said. I personally believe it is better to be lonely and alone, than to give your heart to someone who has no respect of desire for it's values. You are a great woman whom I have come to adore. Thank you for the sweet and kind words my friend.

  14. Beautiful poem, Andy. I see it had been written a while ago, but that does not lessen its impact. I do think for every lonely person out there there is a match, someone meant just for them. Hope you have a good Memorial Day weekend, Andy.
