Sonnet Vii: The Late Night Lonelies

So it’s the late night “lonelies” here again
Sitting and fretting with nothing to say
Sitting in the dark remembering friends,
Swallowing scotch with the devil to pay,
For a downtown past and a rural future,
For a sorted life and a broken back,
For longing for love when I wasn’t sure,
For the fulfilled dreams that I lack.
It’s a lonely world with nothing to say,
It’s remembering friends in the past
It’s smoking and drinking every day,
It’s wishing and longing for love to last.
Yes, the late night “lonelies” are here again,
Yes, the late night “lonelies”, my only friends.

Paul has asked for a truce and I have agreed. I take to include all you others who have been slamming me. All I ask is that you leave me alone. I have deleted all poems referencing Paul as a good faith measure. I am willing to wait and see. Peace... Sandra Osborne
