The Feeling of Alone

August 31, 2010 at 11:59 pm Leave a comment

It’s both a strange and wonderful feeling – the feeling of Alone.

At first it’s incredibly appealing – the idea of On My Own.

Nervous excitement precedes it, but you’re ready, you’ll be okay.

Though nothing can really prepare you, for the actual feeling, on the day.

The space is all yours, spread out, “make it mine”, but every now and then you trip.

You trip on the floors, of personal time, and your faith in yourself starts to rip.

All this space for just one (“it’s mine, just me”) can bring such absolute gain.

But the face of Alone, makes “mine” and “me” become words of pure, utter, pain.

You’re sad, but you smile, and there’s just a little fear, but you know it will all be alright.

You’re glad for a while, then darkness comes near, and you worry ’bout things in the night.

Though you forbid it, sleep will succeed, you’ll be dreaming all the way through.

In morning you’ll have made it, Alone will not lead, you are in charge of you.
