Then There was One

I followed the night’s whispers,

Past the city’s orange glow,

And the windows framing people,

I would never get to know,

While the air hung thick with silence,

Weighed by things I wouldn’t say,

So much I felt it in my fingers,

As I pushed it from the way,

And I fought the empty space,

That walked beside me in the cold,

The invisible reminder,

There was nothing there to hold,

Until the things I called familiar,

Slowly disappeared from sight,

And it felt like the whole world,

Was home to just me and the night,

“Don’t you know you are alone?”

I shouted at its endless black,

Then was taken by surprise,

As a voice came flying back,

But the answer was an echo,

And the voice I heard my own,

Ringing clearly through the silence,

“You are alone, alone, alone.”
