Night Tide

I get loneliest during night tide
I get antsy, wound up too tight
I find myself pacing this quiet, cold house
Longing for a companion to talk to
Someone who sees my point of view
and is as lonely as I
I get loneliest during night tide
I feel the need to drink and play my music
I find I search for any mild, acute distraction
Filling glasses too tall
and smoking too many cigarettes

trying to fill a bottomless void

I get loneliest during night tide
I scratch my beard
I ruffle my hairs, scratch my nuts, maybe rub one out
Often it’s in time of these
the release is self-induced
and I fall back to loneliness and sip from a dirty glass
I get loneliest during night tide
I find I have a desire for you
You waste my nighttide, my solitude
You’re nothing more than someone who sees my point of view
Please go away and just be as lonely as I
