Street lights illuminate the scene
Dimming the brilliency of the stars.
Leaves blow across the pavement-dry and brittle,
Clattering like running footsteps in the night.
The cold sidewalk underneath me as I
Pull my hands inside my warm sleeves.
A puff of breath billows from my lips
And the cool night air streams through my hair.
The sound of a train perks through the night
Echoing down the empty streets.
The train fades off into the distance
And the church bell tolls the hour miles away.
Through the door I hear my stereo
Humming the beat of a love song heard only by me.
I stare into the night watching so closely
As the wind moves through the sillouetted trees.
The leaves shuffle, sounding a gentle chime.
The cold sound of lonely surrounds me
And I shiver where I sit, staring at the sky.

Your words bring the coldness that only lonely times can bring.  I can see the street....the darkness, and the winter wind blow. Very nice poem

The sound of lonely - I love that title, Moonlight.
A poem so soft it floats like a feather.

I need my sweater and socks now!

 "Glory remains unaware of my neglected dwelling where alone
I sing my tearful song which has charms only for me."
