Loneliness is a Sly Poison

Loneliness is a sly poison.

It creeps over your body like an oil slick on the ocean,

Slowly engulfing every pore, quietly penetrating your heart,

Permeating your inner core, your very being.

It leaves you feeling cold and empty inside,

Isolated, out of touch with others,

Passionately wanting to reach out to someone,

But you are choked out, unable to do so.

ur heart cries out with pain, and no one listens.

Loneliness is paralyzing.

As the busy world goes rushing by

You continue to go through the motions,

But you are disconnected, unable to relate.

Your sorrow is impenetrable.

Your spiral of despair begins to gain speed,

Life looks dismal and bleak.

I want this insidious poison to leave me

But it hangs on, a dull deep ache,

That screams in my head.
