Alone in the Dark

A number of us are alone at night.
We are awake, in a half aware state
Thinking and wishing that somebody cared.
We don’t really think about reaching out
To other nocturnal lonely souls,
We are too busy with ourselves.
No one has reached out to us very far.
No one has ever been with us for long.
We lie alone,
In half-hearted distress
Simply because that is how we are.
The night is lonely because of us,
We make it lonely just because
We don’t care for each other enough
To ease rough patches
And light bright matches
To illuminate the fact of the matter.
If we would help one another
There would be no other
Lonely soul, without love’s spark
Alone in the dark.
