Useless Loneliness

It dawns on me that,
Two people could be different
In almost every way,
Yet feel the exact same way.
And I don't understand it.

If we're all so similar,
Why are the differences
So powerful that
Similarity is murdered?
Forgotten

Why do we feel so utterly alone
In everything
All the time?

Why are we so used to,
Comforted and tortured
By loneliness
That we chase intimacy away?

Worry and trust cant live
In the same house harmoniously,
Yet loneliness and comfort
Walk that thin line between
Love and hate seamlessly.
Dipping into each other's stash
Quite often even.
With no vigilance,
soon they become one another.
And the door is shut to happiness.

Hundreds of people.
Thousands of people
So busy being lonely...together.

Is it fear?
Fear of revealing what is true?
Fear of showing oneself?
Fear that things will go so well...
You would have to leave behind
The misery you're so damn used to.
