I write, read, crochet, sing, and play musical instruments. A sucker for learning.
My nights are pitch black
Suffocating and controlling
I crawl face down on the floor
Most of the time
Searching for an unyielding foot
To hold on to
One that's standing firm on the ground
One that can lift me up even with just a finger
I wait until you came
Your face half-lit
Your words few
Your actions hidden in sight
Your gaze expressionless
Your love cold and unfelt
You are my ray of sunshine
A single ray is enough
Yes, it's worth a thousand for me.

Yes, Ms. Brenda. That's it
BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on October 16, 2019:
The loneliness one feels hurts so deep inside that when there is just a tiny ray of sunshine we are happy.
