Nikki Giovanni

(June 7, 1943 / Knoxville, Tennessee)

I'm Not Lonely


I'm not lonely
sleeping all alone
you think i'm scared
but i'm a big girl
i don't cry or anything

I have a great
big bed to roll around
in and lots of space
and i don't dream
bad dreams like i used
to have that you
were leaving me
anymore

Now that you're gone
i don't dream
and no matter
what you think
i'm not lonely
sleeping
all alone
