Alone – a poem about love lost

Alone is a fantasy poem written in allegory about a woman who forsakes her lover to follow other purposes in life. The mountain represents her isolation, and the snow the coldness of her decision. 

ALONE
©2013 by Jon Gutmacher

She sits on a mountain
surrounded by snow
it is a place
only
she can go

And there up high
in frozen bliss
she wonders now
if she will miss

The life she left
if life could be
in warmth of sand
by breeze of sea

And holding the hand
of who she loved
now lost
now lost
in time

Now snowflakes swirl
and gather round
the path that led
cannot be found

Now deeper
deeper
snow grows deep
so every day
her secrets keep

And looks around
this place so bare
as white does streak
once golden hair

And lines invade
a perfect face
all tempered in
the snow’s embrace

For she lives alone
upon the steep
has given all
but did not keep

What she loved best
and let him go
forever left
in deepening snow

Forever left
alone
