"I Am Not Alone" by Michael Traveler

here in the darkness
as the cold closes in
i can see a distant light
cresting the horizon
.
faint but true
.
the road behind me
has been long and winding
fraught with danger
and with pleasures too
that have broke many a man
.
but here i still stand
.
memories now hold me
close in their embrace
.
faces and places
i keep tucked away
here in my heart
.
gentle moments
that keep me warm
here in the dark
.
alone
on this winding road
.
and as the darkness
closes in
.
slithering
beneath my clothes
and down into my skin
.
i think of you
my dear friend
the one who's
always been
.
so true
so loyal
.
loving and kind
.
standing
right beside me
each and every time
.
shoring me up
giving me strength
.
even now
in my darkest hour
as the cold seeps
down to the bone
.
to what remains of my soul
.
a light flickers
on the horizon
growing stronger
.
brighter
.
calling me
calling my name
.
whispering
.
a comforting glow
warming my soul
.
reaching into the darkness
and letting me know
.
that i am not alone
.

rude, crude, and lewd
