The Lonely Hours

The hours after midnight
are for lovers
and criminals
with the lonely in between.
A time that silence is
an enemy
when the only other sounds are
each breath
inhaled....exhaled
and the bleeding of the heart
counting seconds
in an endless night
of loneliness.

Robert,
What a sad poem...whew! Sorry about the computer sickness!!!
Here's your prescription....

When you're feelin' lonely
in the midnight hour
Dial into Passions so your
friends can send you a flower.

Nice work Robert.
