Listen to Me My Adversary

Loneliness came in my darkest hour
To prove to me who held the power
That tightening feeling
Would send me reeling
And send me to my room to cower

It crept up on me out of the blue
And I did not know what I could do
First it was a blessing
Now itโ€™s just a messing
And all the colors are a different hue

It came as the clock hand struck
And I knew it was just my luck
I felt a tightening
It was some what frightening
And I could not escape itโ€™s muck

I looked loneliness in the face
In what must have been a glorious place
In a wink and a flash
I made a mad dash
But loneliness kept up with my pace

Oh loneliness why do you torture me
Is it ever enough for thee
Look how the pain
Has drove me insane
And from it I will never flee
