I Like to Walk Alone

I like to walk alone

I like to walk alone
In the desert...
By the light of
The stars....
And the moon......
A man.......being a man...
Alone...and comfortable
In his own skin....

I dig a hip hole....
Yes, the sand is cold....it doesn't remember me...
And that's as it should be....
Laying down and looking up
At all the gems and jewels
God has given us.....
 
To dream that dream again
Of you.....
And the day you wore that
Empire dress...
When we were just kids...
Funny what a man
Thinks about as
He closes his eye's
To sleep.

I love this! For some reason it reminds me of a young man I knew once! Thanks for bringing back an old memory! Laura

:) very nice and warmhearted write. What really astounds me, is the number of poems I have read that describe the night sky as gems and jewels, including me actually when I wrote, "Precious lights". You should enter this in Laura Mckenzie's contest, "Beyond Nightfall". If you do, I wish good luck in the contest. Best wishes, Caroline.
