Alone

Ghostly
chimes ring in my ears
awakening me
bathed in
awash in
velvet rays of sunlight.
Faintly
a remembrance
words whispered
hot breath
warm hands
desire swelling
peaking
falling
dissipating
while I lay coiled in your arms.
Awareness 
slowly creeps in
tears crawl down my cheeks
for this is naught
but a dream.
Perchance
one day
a time come soon
I will once more be there
comforted
protected
loved again.
I wait…..
tremors to cease
heart to resume beating
time to move forward.
While I……
I remain in the past
caught
in the greatest love affair
of my life.
Tangled web
sticky strands
none let go
none shall stand.
Alone I am.
Alone I shall be.
Alone…….
forever 
eternally.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
