Alone In The Night

Alone In The Night by joe

it has to be okay
to be alone in the night

of aloneness

could be interpreted

for independence
for self-sufficiency

but sometimes
the aloneness
just feels hollow
and the result is sorrow
and the result is sadness
and the result is despair
and the result is insomnia

and the result is crying
and the result is intractable
and the result is ugly
and the result tortures me

but i must learn
to be alone in the night
to not depend on another person
or even an audience
for comfort
