The Only Sound!

The only sound is your own footsteps

alone walking up to your home

hearing a voice realising it is yourself

no other person is anywhere about

putting the key into your door lock

you enter the only noise your clock!

 

Home from work being in company

into the emptiness of your domain

a contrast you find is hard to bear

not what your plan was meant to be

into the usual routine making the tea

dreading the evening you switch on tv!

 

Few friends or relations call or visit you

how did it get into this state

trying not to think of the past too much

once again dozing in that comfy chair

how nice to have a companion here

before all alone you disappear!

 

That sensation of being trapped in a lair

is consuming as few know you are there

an increasing factor of society loneliness

where there is also a growing coldness!

 

The Foureyed Poet.
