Grasping Isolated - Poem by April Swanson

Lonely are these days
Followed by these nights,
Lonely am I,
In so many ways

So lonely am I,
That it bring tears
Casting out my inner fear

Crying only a little bit is no use
Happiness hides in the last tear
And I wept it
All that was lost becomes found…
Burning in my eyes

A shadow is floating through the moonlight.
And the night holds its breath
The air is full of emotions to feel,
And I drink in them passionately

Alone am I,
With all these feelings,
I'm Alone to wander
Alone to ponder
What should have been between us

Alone to cry
to smile
And all the while
Alone to discover
A world full of twisted beauty

The fears that I dream
of things that I should not say
But I'm alone with my dreams,
Alone each and every day

Alone in morning
Afternoon and the night
Alone without knowing...
Being alone is not right

I’m not satisfied
Thinking these thoughts like I do
When I know there is someone out there
Who is just as confused

But I’ll keep these emotions in check and hidden
This person doesn’t need to know how I felt,
And they don’t need to be forgiven

But for now...

I will continue alone

And stand alone...

For I’m not ready to have them back by my side
