I lied alone in bed at night, wondering of life
How alone I felt; how abandoned I had been
How he had found her, how she had found him
I lied alone at night, wondering of life
Vibes of desire shook my mind
Feelings of need drowned my body

I lied alone, wondering what was missing
I saw him with her; her with him
Knowing that something was missing
I thought, I pondered, I imagined
what is gone, what is missing?
A gap, in my heart, a rift in my brain
A void that you filled, but I did not know

He and her had become them
And still I wondered of life
Than my thoughts turned to us
Yes, we joke; yes, we kid
But we always had fun throughout the night
So as I sit here, next to you, I know we are right
To be together, you're my bridge across the rift
And you're my heartstring, to fill my void
Now I lie not alone, I lie with thoughts of you
Just wait... I'll prove my devotion is true

  This is a good look at the place of contemplation and the feeling of lost loves. You portray the aloneness and contemplation well.

I am a bit thrown off by the switch from third person to second person references. I am not real clear on what switches the him/her/them to you.

You begin talking to the reader and end up talking to someone else. You are alone and then suddenly they are sitting beside you. Maybe I am just thick in the head.

I like the poem and the wonderful images and feeling.
