Sleepless again in auburn, alabama
So I got outside to see the stars.
I'm typing this with my eyes closed.
Not ready to give up or sleep - only tired.
Tired of being me and of trying to make myself better.
Because I'm not successful at either one.
Tired of trying to figure out what is going on in life
Because I'll never know.
Tired of trying to find a person to love me
Because I want them to find me.
Tired of trying to express how I feel
Because no one will ever know - not even me.
Tired of pouring my heart & soul into this lifeless machine
Because it hasn't got any warmth for me.
Tired of holding onto the past
Because it only reminds me again and again.
Tired of singing this song
Because it always makes me cry.
Tired of watching the stars alone
Because one will always be the lonliest number.
Its 4am and I'm just tired....

(these random thoughts just sort of turned into a poem one night while in the grips of insomnia - m o o n l i g h t)

I loved this when I first read it, it FEELS more each time I read it. It evokes a feeling of belonging, I am not alone in being lonely.
Thank you for being here, dear.

I loved this poem, it was natural, the way it
was just written without any thought just feelings and emotions.
