Lonely Night


My heart is running dry
There's not a shoulder to cry
Everyone's a stranger tonight
It's such a lonely night

Lonely are the stars, lonely the night
A lonely cloud wanders, silently it cries
It's raining tears tonight
It's such a lonely night

The waves washed away my sandcastles
The eerie darkness holds me in shackles
Even my shadows desert me tonight
It's such a lonely night

So far are you, that you can't hear my cries
My heart doesn't beat anymore, yet it never dies
I bleed alone, not a soul in sight
It's such a lonely night

Poem of the Day

poet Ambrose Bierce

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
