This is a repost of an old piece that didn't get a chance for many views. Hope you enjoy it.

Wee Hours Nocturne

 Four in the morning and loneliness

is my only companion.

It torments me

by singing its haunting refrain

to my heart.

Once, it was a stranger,

but now,

I know it well.

The hours we have shared

brought not contempt,

but an uneasy truce

between what I want

and what is.

A selective forgetfulness

of the pleasure of passionís whispers

tingling on my skin,

of the thrill of fingertips and lips

exploring me,

of sighs that shout

what no spoken language can express.

I long for sleep,

my only respite:

that time when

the past becomes the present,

and we have a future.

Loneliness can become a companion be convincing her to change her name to alone. We can be alone without being lonely. A beautiful write, Bobbi. Peace. Joyce

Hey Bobbi, I can relate, writing helped save me in wee hours. Of course the loneliness always lurks at times, but I'm a loner anyway. Great reflective poeming

Bobbi, it is amazing how many poets find sleep so elusive and the hours between 2 am to 6 am so much the worst. Luckily our muses seem to always be at hand at those times to inspire us, goad us and keep us company till the sandman or woman is finally ready for us. Great write Bobbi.

It's four in the morning, and look what I'm doing, enjoying your lovely words. I love this one--many beautiful lines, my favorite

"....a select forgetfulness
of the pleasure of passion's whispers
tingling on my skin...."

WOW. THAT woke me up--thank you. :)

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

I came here to cool off, Bobbi! Look at what you wrote--->"of the thrill of fingertips and lips exploring me, of sighs that shout"

I'll be back! What are your sighs shouting, Bobbi?
