To Sing Alone 

​My heart prefers to sing alone

With time fading away

Somewhere between forever and never

And all that’s left

Is a pale memory 

Of a wish I use to dream 
Holding on to a past life 

That was never meant to be

I look into the mirror, wondering 

Who is this stranger 

Looking back at me
I failed myself 

The doubts and insecurities 

That hide behind a smile

What do you do?

What’s the purpose looking

For the end of the rainbow? 
It’s a foolish fantasy 

Just a made up dream

I escape reality

Where my song fades

And loneliness thrives
But it’s a familiar place 

To be free to be me

Reality and I have quarrelled. This is where I go so he can't find me, my Other Place. Here I can spin my Fancies and Fiction, as I wander among the Stars and listen as they whisper their secret to the moon. My name is Annie, I am lovely and lonely and I belong deeply to myself. I love cats, listening to the blues, the mountains more than the beach, being lazy, writing my fancies and fiction and I also love to crochet. That's me and this is my Other Place.
