Now That She's Gone – Frank Solanki

Give me Loneliness for company
Give me strangers for friendship
Give me a heart that I once owned
Diseases to fill it with
Now that I am alone
Now that she has gone

Give me walls that can whisper
Give me a roof, a cracking roof
Give me a floor full of rodents
A hallucination proof
Now that I am alone
Now that she has gone
I can’t stand on my feet
I can’t stand my chattering teeth
I can’t stand on my own
Now that she has gone

Give me darkness for days
Give me anxiety for nights
Give me ignorance for life
Now that she has gone
Now that she has gone

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
