For Certain .. Alone

Loneliness settles in as the music dies

It was always there as I closed my eyes

But now the music brings memories

of love and a desperate longing.

Hopeful days lie ahead

that is what they’ve all said

but I’ve lost hope, built walls

I don’t know if I can let anyone in.

The tree sits in the corner abandoned

Family obligations, holidays end.

New beginnings at the New Year

but really can I start again?

There’s no resolution as I sit alone in the dark

My entire life filled with unknowns.

The only truth that is evident is

I’ve always lived life alone.

That has not changed.

There’s no hope that it ever will.

Just how much “alone” is one  capable of?
