Lonely and Alone

Lonely and Alone

When I am lonely, I

Dwell on the past,

Numb my mind with television,

Eat too many carbs.  I

Feel empty, like a cup unfilled,

Like a child not hugged, like a cat unfed. 

I stare at Facebook and Twitter,

Using words, not feeling heard.

More connected, maybe, but not happy.

When I am lonely, I regret.

I look at photos, wonder what could have been,

Wonder why it wasn’t. 

When I am lonely, tears sting,

And I stir late at night in my bed,

Wondering what my future holds. 

 

When I am alone, I create.

I put words to paper, share my ideas.

I will be read, heard one day, as I make words

into music.  When I am alone,

music fills my soul,  from itunes, and the

depths of my mind.

Wine might help me unwind, but it’s not

 my addition. 

When I am alone, I read.  I go to

New worlds in my mind, wonder

what world, what characters I might

once day create. 

 

When I am lonely, I am anxious.

When I am alone, I am a creator

Who lets her muse sing.
