Alone with My Thoughts


Alone with my thoughts,
Alone in my dreams,
Alone in the night,
Alone with my screams.

Alone in that place between sleep and awake,
I lay here alone and wait for daybreak.

Alone in my room,
Alone in my bed,
But I’m not alone in my in my heart or my head.
For your love is forever in my heart,
Your smile forever in my head.

    I certainly can relate to the sentiments expressed in here but not write about it a well as you have. Strange, we think we want to be alone but after awhile the sounds of silence are too much to bare. A book can make one stop the thoughts, a good novel or movie and your writing can really help you and others who read it. This is really good..Know that you are not 'ALONE' in this alone state! ! ! love, marci. :) (Report) Reply

    Living alone is an extremely difficult decision to make - but being brought up with an independant spirit from Boarding School days, I find this is the only way to be - I wrote a poem titled 'Alone and Strong' which focussed on the freedom and confidence in being so - I really can relate here.

    Thanks Les for this insightful poem.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
