Loneliness

By Jon Dunnemann




Loneliness seats us in darkness and engulfs us in silence.

In the absence of warmth we become cold and frigid.

The heart seems to lose its natural rhythm.

Stricken with pause we slowly begin to wilt.

Left in this condition for too long we are overtaken both by fear and despair.

Very likely, hope will rise up and walk out on us.

Good reason though informs us that being alone is so very unbecoming.

It is far better for us to grab a firm hold of our sense of oneness.

There in the company of others we are assured comfort.
