Loneliness

Rating: 3.1
Being apart and lonely is like rain.
It climbs toward evening from the ocean plains;
from flat places, rolling and remote, it climbs
to heaven, which is its old abode.
And only when leaving heaven drops upon the city.

It rains down on us in those twittering
hours when the streets turn their faces to the dawn,
and when two bodies who have found nothing,
dissapointed and depressed, roll over;
and when two people who despise eachother

This is a brilliant poem. In this age of social media, the first few lines of the second stanza can take on a whole new nuanced meaning.

I think this poem about being loneliness is a nice poem even though people go through this every day of their lives and the poet is saying that being apart and lonely is like rain I think loneliness for some people might think they are standing in the rain without anyone noticing. and how it climbs towards evening from the ocean plains; that reminds me that loneliness builds up after a long time in our lives. It can be a horrible thing to feel if you feel like that all the time it can get to you after a while if you don't handle it at that time.

metaphoric, another way to read 'loneliness' and 'two people who despise eachother'.
