No One

No one
to love me
ever
again.

No one
to hold me
skin
to skin.

No one
to show me
the meaning
of love.

No one
to know me,
redeeming
my trust.

These are the fears
that haunt me at night,
cold, naked demons
not afraid of light.

These are the thoughts,
one hundred years old,
bubbling in my cracked pot,
leaching life from my soul.

No one
to mend me
when I am
ill.

No one
to defend me
when I am
still.

No one
to Shine
a love light
on me.

No one
to pine
when life
I leave.

These are the demons
that speak to me at night,
cold, naked fears
not afraid of light.

These are my secrets,
one thousand years old,
growing in my sore spot,
stealing sun from my soul.

I liked the song "Shine" so much after reading this that I bought it on iTunes, then left a copy on Abby's computer called "Abby-play-me" so she could hear it when she gets home tonight.

Your poems are rocking my planet. Keep it up.
