Loneliness

She creeps around my room

lulling any sound whispering

in the creak of my chair

or the opening of a cabinet

watching and listening

like a hawk perched for flight

then she comes into my mind

with a hug and a kiss

loving me for who I am

and who I want to be

or who I have become

then she tickles me

in the vulnerability of my soul

stirring me into life

and I begin to let my keyboard play

like a piano of my dreams

as I play a song for her to sleep

while I sift through my world

like a spider’s web

trapped in the loneliness

of bountiful joy and happiness.
