I am tired now,
eyes wishing to see their last,
“And miles to go before I sleep.”
It creeps up on me again,
this feeling of loneliness and despair.
I should have learned by now
that slowing down invites the emotion back.
My heart has yearned for so long
for the love and companionship of a man,
it does not know anything else.
Love would be nice to know
as well as heartache.
However I must continue on,
to forget once more,
all my desires.
