Alone

Another night
unsuccessfully
trying to crumple my
Thoughts
Feelings
SADNESS
And shove them as
far down into the 
Abyss - the deep, dark
recesses of my heart
that is so beautifully
Broken.
It gets cold at night.
The Darkness outside 
creeps in under the doors
through the cracked blinds and
eavesdrops.
Listening for the Grief to
catch in my throat, 
for the hushed sob.
That no one else detects.
But Darkness seizes its
PREY.
Patiently waiting for the 
Hour of Exhaustion.
Of Defeat.

Then silently and skillfully 
slides up next to me.
Envelopes me.
Holding me close.
An unwanted yet constant
companion. 
Darkness invites Loneliness.
It appears as a vapor.
Inhaling deep into my lungs,
it becomes me.
Infiltrates my bloodstream
taking over my body.
My heart aches, my bones cry out.
Tears come, but for just a moment.
They are running out and 
Frustrated.
Sinking into the arms of the 
Unwanted Nightly Guest,
drawing in the heaviness of
Sheer Solitude.
Perhaps Rest will arrive
tomorrow.
