Everyone Is gone, I look around, silence Is the sound,

Where did they go, I do not know, I am somehow alone.

A campsite of darkness Is a fun and peaceful place,

A warm fire, friends, and laughter will liven up the night.

What a difference It makes when you’re alone In the dark,

The lonely quiet that accompany’s a fear that something Is there.

There are two parts, different views on being alone In the dark,

Peace and time by yourself to breathe and think can be great.

Wondering what’s a danger or the silent dark that scares a man,

Fear of the unknown, afraid of being alone, alone In the dark.

  1. I have to tell you that generally I do not like poetry. I never cared for Frost, Browning, or any of the others that were required reading in high school and later, college. However … I really DO like your poetry! It sends a message that I actually understand, it isn’t long and rambling. I am happy to have finally found what I consider to be “readable” poetry!
