ALONE

I go to bed alone; I wake up alone
I eat all my meals in silence
Not another soul at home

I laugh alone; I cry alone
I wonder through these rooms
Imprisoned in my home

I dream alone; I scream alone
I reach out for an embrace
In this bedroom of my home

Alone, alone; I’m tired of being alone
While you travel far from home

Now you sleep beside me, yet I feel so all alone
For in your obliged embrace
My heart is dying....all alone.

For Black Eyed Susan's Loneliness Contest

    Thank you for your kind comments, Danesh, Sandra, and Debbie....I'm sorry I haven't replied personally. I'm out of an internet line at home...At the office now... :) I appreciate your thoughts on this piece...We all get lonely sometimes....don't we? ;) To all who WILL post after reading my piece...know that I am grateful for your visit. This was a longer piece but I had to reduce it to meet with the specifications of the contest. HUGS to one and all!

    Thanks, Richard....I thought maybe this one might have a chance. Unfortunately, I had to edit some of it because it was post the 12 line mark. That hurt, cause I had some important lines there. At least it got some exposure. It was an older write....Thanks for the visit and sharing part of your life with me.

    Its hard not to take it personally when jobs take loved ones on the road....I know....I think it is hard for them too though....good luck with this situation...I ended up traveling four years with my husband! Blessings
