Nothing Here

Lie alone and know
this is all
the eye’s that still dream
grow weary of this sad world
of love, of pain, of pity

dawn is a long time lost
and i waited, too little and lonely
dusk comes
filled with shadows of the past
memories that never were
inside a life that never was

no happiness in yesterday
tomorrow is never here
and i have forgotten today
an empty page needy for words

it’s time to shut the door
time to let the dreaming go
lost in how broken i feel
all the light has vanished
there is nothing here

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.
