The Emptyness Of My Night

Nights move  like a forgotten  ghost unwanted by all.     
A vision  unseen to all but one.

Down damp streets he haunts the same path every night just befor the dawn.
The empty hearts gather to drown togther in the sea. 

Togther feeling so very alone. 
Can we cast shadows in the darkness project happiness in such gloom to return the   same 
old haunts again and again.
A wheel  rolling  without question.
On into the emptyness of my night. 

Waitting for a return that  never will be.
Cursing the problem never understanding it was her and me.
As the dream turn to the drunk.

The painter paints no longer sunsets but
Nights and his thoughts of blue to gray.

Warmth in the darker corners gives a view to 
the young and  the still hopefull.
Tiping my half empty glass I wish them to never know pain.

Finding a home with other empty hearts caught.
In dirty sheets im haunted by the ghost of my
former self.

A puddle stepped in cast waves of reflected neon light.
As we play a roll unknown to all  
At typewritter  I sit.
Listening to To the bar and bottles clatter men and women's
laughter and soon forgotten fight.
Yerning to be free so is the emptyness of my night.

    John, Great write but sad. Loneliness is tough and we all experience empty nights even when we're married! So I say, don't give up keep believing that it won't last forever. Peace to you this Holy Season and know that you are not alone, John-if that's any consolation. God bless. Love, Audrey

    Sad write but a very vivid image into the thoughts of a lonely person reflecting the battles they have begun to overcome but are still battling the memories left behind. Excellent write A. W. Nutter

    Somewhat sad but very descriptive. Keep the creative pen flowing. Sara
