Emotion fills this night
for I sleep alone again
no more than just a shell
of what others think
I ought to be

while this conflict
seems eternal
between all that I am
and all that others
say I ought to be

yet meaning lies
beyond all alibis
here in flesh and blood
just wondering when
this feeling will emerge

and more than this
will finally merge
into this love I feel to be
the touch of all eternity . . .
