A Beam of Light in a Darkened Existence

She felt alone so much of the time

Ignored by those who said they cared

She sat in the dark replaying another day

A day trapped behind four walls

But then a voice from her past

Came back to her briefly

A series of texts from an old friend

Brought back the sound of his voice

And some feelings that had never left

Overjoyed by the thought of seeing him

The thoughts broke through her darkened night

Giving her hope for a connection

A way out of this choking loneliness

If only for a few hours

 

Written for Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (FOWC) – overjoyed
