Lonely - Poem by Sandra Osborne

How to describe it?

Maybe a leaf on a snow covered field,
Maybe a log in the middle of a lake,
Maybe a snow flake in the middle of June,
Maybe a tree in a crater on the moon,
Maybe a canoe in the middle of a forest,
Maybe a star in the middle of the day,
Or maybe me, in the middle of you.

    The last line didn't work for me at first, but the more I thought about it, the more it seems to. You can become engulfed by someone, swallowed up by their more dominant personality, and still feel alone. (Report) Reply

    I seek my own company
    For i have become
    A joy to myself
