Alone is Temporary

Alone is Temporary

Close the door and turn off the lights

Let the room fill with earth-shattering silence 

Alone at last

The isolation fills my body 

It rushes through my blood 

boiling up from bottom to top

Intoxicating me as I gasp for air 

I'm buried alive in loneliness 

But it cannot kill me 

Alone is temporary 

I'm inches from the door and the light switch 

I can reach out and let the light feel the open air 

Alone is temporary 

I am not afraid of alone 

Alone is temporary 

This poem is about: 
Me
