I Was Alone Last Night
Author: Terrie*


I spent the night alone
for the very first time
no-one to hold me
or keep me safe
no-one to comfort me
and keep me warm

I spent the night alone
for the very first time
I was so scared
I was so alone
I cried all of my tears
I dreamed you in my dreams

last night I spent the night alone
I tossed and I turned
so alone was I
I lay there so still
broken hearted
so confused and so alone

last night I was so alone
I cried and I cried
my heart silently shattering
my voice became unheard
my world seemed to be shutting down
my tears are bleeding because you've died...

So touching

You share so much of you in your writings, Thank you so much for sharing, and also touching those places within us all.

There is no, last night, just, mornings alone


The passion of which you speak, comes often, not, just one night for you. The tears you shed are testimony, to a love of flesh, spirit and soul, you once shared. You write your words as cover, for you fear to show, what is in your heart, that perhaps, no one will care. The flesh is now resting, in a sacred place, and when the time comes and it will come back to life, and I hope the two of you, will have a private place!

I know you Terrie, and though I seem to joke, I understand, what you are going through, the flesh cries out, but is subdued by the soul, which one day, will greet you and aagin rejoice. I say, I hope, you have a private room.

Forgive me Terrie, if I seem to miss the point, for I do not, think that I do. I can only hope some day, someone loves me, in your, special way, and will be there as it once was, just another day of love, now, gone by.

Beatifully written, though I see and feel, not what you try and hide, but, love, laid upon the land, for all to see and travel and one day, the same as you, I hope their love finds, the destination, you both, still share.
