Another Lonely Night


Another lonely night
I wait by the shores of my mind
For a breeze to blow clear
The staleness that lingers there
Friends far and few
From another lifetime
I wonder about the retinue
And the thing we use to do
The smoke the drinks the laughter
And all the things we were after
As the door shuts quietly on the distance night
Before the palatable hope subsides
In the brief reprieve I hide
From loneliness staring me in the eyes

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
