'I Vant To Be Alone'


Greta Garbo was wrong,
It's not good to be alone,
It's a mistake to Want to be alone,
In the darkness of the tunnel of your thoughts,
Even a small candle, lit by someone who cares,
Can save you from life threatening nightmares,
From the cold, from the trembling fright,
From becoming, a solid pillar of stone,
Without feelings, without light
All alone, like a frightened child,
In the middle of the Night.

No Greta,
It's not good to be Alone,
No one to hold your hand,
Or help you find your way Home.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
