I could never be alone with
There is always a noise
I hear leaves rustling from the
and the sounds of cars
by, and if it is too
quiet, I will turn the tv on low -or
music and I don't really even pay attention to either.
I could never really be alone with
so I had babies,
one after another,
until I became too
old. And then I got a dog to try to fill the
in my heart, that only those babies could fill.
Now, I live alone with a dog who
noises around me, and I
the sound, feel, and smell of a baby.
