Empty house

im not lonely i enjoy my own company
unlike everyone else
on the other hand there something odd
about an empty house
like getting shivers when its pretty warm
maybe its because the house it old
but it shouldnt be so cold
or maybe im wrong and im alone after all
and it isnt the house i can hear in the walls
maybe i am touch hungry looking for human heat
but i can do nothing to change it or make the house warmer
ill have to just settle for a blanket and socks on my feet.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

oddest ryhme scheme i have ever used.

When reading the first stanza

When reading the first stanza I could not help but feel its relevance to my own life. Id rather live alone than be in the core of the man who is lost in his own body. Nice read amongst so many other pieces. keep going.
