The Feeling of Alone #Poetry #Journey

the feeling of alone
in bed at night
isn’t so bad anymore
the sheets stimulate
nerve endings on my feet
the pillow I lay against
only my own scent
it is familiar
and comforting
no unsettling sounds
fill the night
only the silence
it’s good to have some
peace and quiet
after all that turmoil
