Feel So Alone
by Libby Dorot
Let there be nothing
nothing to fill the space
No mind no heart no face
And with no light there’s
No sense of time
No sense of an I
Last night I read
And in it it said
in it it said
“How, if I could, if I could,
I would be the one to let you know
that baby this is only the beginning.
If I could, if I could… You wouldn’t feel so alone.”
now i know where i go to fill my soul
in the garden ripe and over grown
I cannot feel alone when the
sky kisses me and the trees wave me on
This, my home, revives me and feeds me
I’ve grown up here, why should it mislead me
and cast me out
What am I to be if I’m to be without
“And now, if I could, if I could, I would be the one to let you know, that baby this is what they call being. If I could… if I could… then you wouldn’t feel so alone”
broken locks tree tops labotomy
rather wilted vines weave out of me
I left it for the cold
And I don’t know now where to go
I can’t carry your weight and mine forever
You’re not good for me
The horizon begs another beat
And now, if I could, if I could, I would be the one to let you know that baby this is what is meant by living. If I could I would- and you wouldn’t feel so alone.
And you know that I will turn my back and walk away and you won’t see me again.
I can walk away, I can turn my back and you won’t see me again, no you won’t see me again. You won’t see me again. No.
If I could, If I could, I would be the one to l let you know that baby this is the beginning, If I could, if I could. You won’t always feel so alone.
