Abandoning A Friend

Most of my paintings have poems. Here is the latest, for the "abandonment" picture I'll be working on next year.

As abandoned as a grey leaf
in a flat and ceaseless wind.
As lost as youth,
or the truth in a lie.
Alone as a cloud in a sunless sky.

In deserts of clay
tread a long slow path
to a cold wide peace
without once looking back.

Your poetry is both beautiful and poignant. Makes me want to weep.
