Dealing With Loneliness

When you talk

To your loneliness

Like you were

Talking to an equal,

You are

Dealing with your loneliness.

You can ask

Your loneliness

What would it take

For it to leave

Your life.

Intimacy, Friendship and Community

Says your loneliness.

How about if you acquire

Two out of three?

It depends

On your loneliness

And you,

Which deal

Is going to work

For your loneliness

To leave you.

    I can relate to this poem of yours in a way. Although the loneliness hurts within, I don't want to get rid of it because it deepens my thoughts on life. Expressions of emptiness, loneliness, abandonment are essential emotions of every human being, they help us to grow as we go through and experience them, I think. Just my take on it.

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
