The sun went down tonight and left me lonely waiting for the stars and moon to take its place
I watched the sky with bated breath but heavy clouds obscured my view.
I waited and waited but only the breeze in the pines came to interrupt my solitude
It whispered secrets I wasn't able to hear and made me lonelier than before
I went inside discouraged and turned on the kitchen lamp
Moths fluttered near the flame and afraid of their demise I turned the light off
Alone in the dark I thought about the void you left
and realized that the light I craved could not fill it
I needed more so I gave in to my loneliness and called you
The phone rang lonely once and twice and at three I gave up
And l let the dark take me.
