3 AM

Woman
it is 3 AM
where are you?

Do you know
what it is like
stretched across a bed

alone at 3 AM
waiting for you
staring at the moon?

The clock ticks
the moon rolls
over rooftops and disappears...

I drive to look for you,
nothing but closed signs
in windows with faceless mannequins...

Red lights and stop signs
basket people about
still no you...

So, I text you and no reply
I drove back home
to greet the god of wine...

A bottle later
still no you...

    Hi Ken, once more your heart is out there my friend. Once more your emotions come forth, sadly. You search and search and end up alone. Well, not alone, the wine is there. This isn't a real write is it? You are so good, I never quite know whether it's true and false. A sad but well written piece Ken. Love is a two sided coin. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    Ken These words pull at my heart in a sad and emotional way. You expressed your feelings of abandonment loneliness perfectly. Nice job
