Alone

I am alone. I can feel it like a chink in the body of my soul. I am alive when I am in the company of others. I revel in the humanity.

The beauty of a simple conversation, or presence that has such a greater power than most would care to credit. I laugh, sing, shout and let show the happy man I which to be. I can feel on top of the world in those moments, of truly wonderful human interaction.

But when I am on my own once again the torment surfaces from the swaying tide of emotion and thoughts. In those moments of feeling trully alone, I crave to find a companion who can calm that tide. Charm it with the sweetest of melodies that seeps into the very fibre of my being. One who I can show the scared world that lives inside.

The one who I can confide in, the one who I will always be there for, the one who laughs so fine when I tell them the jokes I passionately search for, simply because I have fallen in love with putting a smile on there face.

I search for it all in my dreams, each night as I sail that ever changing tide. Blind hope being my vessel as I try see through that bleak darkness, praying that I might just catch a glimpse of what I seek. A lover, a friend... A saviour.
