Lonely Cottage

Lonely Cottage

A Poem by T. Edana Talbott

What if one day, after all this is done,

I wake up in a lonely cottage,

Despite all I’ve gained,

And all I’ve won;

I lose my friends,

And family too,

And somehow, someway,

I lost you.

What happens if after all I’ve said,

After the days are long gone and dead,

I make the worst mistake I ever could,

And end up in a lonely cottage,

Like I  probably should.

Maybe it won’t be so bad,

Being by myself,

Maybe I’ll have gained self love,

Through self help.

And maybe I won’t mind,

The ache in the night,

That chews at my throat,

And scratches and fights.

Perhaps I’m just meant,

For a lonelier life,

To show those who have something -

Cozy and warm -

Should be warned.
