Okay...I decided it was time to post one of my "sad" poems...hope you like it!

          Alone

Each evening brings a sense of dread;
For, as the shroud of night is spread,
I face, once more, an empty bed
Alone.

I try, in vain, to go to sleep,
As, slowly by, the hours creep.
I toss and turn; I sigh and weep
Alone.

And, when, at last, the night is gone,
I gain no solace from the sun.
With misty eyes, I glimpse the dawn
Alone.

***hsystems,
I can really relate to this poem.
Insomnia is a bugger, but I find that so much work can shoot out of me in these situations.
A great poem.

Thank you all for your kind comments, and for  reading my poetry to begin with.  And, Star15, it looks like you're new here (pretty new, myself,) so welcome!  Don't worry about rhyming - some of  the best poems are free-verse.  Just let your feelings flow through your poetry, and you'll be fine!

Troy
