Alone

I am in that darkest place of deep despair
where the demons of the night play on my greatest fears
franticly I search for loving arms to keep me safe
but they are gone
at times I see a glimmer of hope in the blackness
and I rush toward it only to see it flicker and die
like match light in a storm
My heart is shattered, my hopes dispersed
alone I face my fears
rejection, betrayal and abandonment
the loss of all I once held dear
my very existence in question
a drama queen
I am me no more
I am a caterpillar locked in a chrysalis 
hoping to emerge a butterfly on its final day 
but for now 
alone with the creatures of the night

You really have a wonderful way with words, so direct, so clean! 'My heart is shattered, my hopes dispersed!' How very painful. I am very touched by your poem.
