My First Night

'Congradulations! You won!'
While it lasted it was fun
But now the silence has begun
To terrify this little one.

Alone, white walls rise up all around
A little girl in a big new town
Trying not to sigh and frown
A mouth on which smiles usually abound.

But here I am, a little scared
I always thought I was prepared
There nothing that can be compared
To the lonliness that must be bared.

But suddenly my cell phone rings!
How my heart dances and sings
A friend is coming, I won't be alone
Now I won't sit here and moan.

I've found out that when you grow up you tend to be alone in it sometimes! I like how you expressed the feelings so simply in this poem.
In reference to your other poem "Home Again" Maybe you should take a look at this one and see if maybe you grew up and now don't know if you're the same.... Well you are just different! Makes sense doesn't it!

This recalled for me the year I spent after high schgool and before college. My world felt so empty when I was home alone. Now, I'm more settled with the ebb and flow of company in my life. I even enjoy it. Nice work.
