My Description of Loneliness

The tarot card “Death” held the night still glistening in drenching dew
upon the docile, pale face in transition to revive and be anew.
This journey covered in the rainbow dispelled from her enduring heart
covering the midnight skies and stars that were separated and driven apart.

Her form bearing immeasurable strength adored and somehow revered,
giving way for her essence to pass through the pie-eyed larks without shedding a tear.
You care for your loneliness, but why avoid me or dare to ignore?
For rapport can be more of a healer than some pet theory score.

Do you know what it is too long for what has passed without promise of it’s return?
Can you feel the heat on your back when their heads turn?
My definition of loneliness wouldn’t at all bear anything to you-
for anyone who know and discover it are the tried and true.

Footnote: Loneliness is an emotion that knows no logic. Things that aren’t logical really can put a challenge on anyone who attempts to seek a definition or a wide array of definitions. There are also synonyms to compromise with as well as human psyche, emotional connections, spiritual definitions and connections, and lifestyle. If anything, everything I had described in the previous sentence should and can be a guideline in defining loneliness, but can never give any one definition more emphasis than the other – they are all a part of how we think and feel. How we think usually derives from what we sense/feel as human beings and because of that alone, there is no actual logic behind this emotion. Don’t get me wrong… loneliness is not a disillusion or a figment of someone’s imagination. I believe that if the world exposed itself to Emotional Intelligence, there would be a more broad definition for everything challenging us to exercise our empathy and compassion – two beautiful human qualities that a lot of professionals and people alike overlook.


It feels like the midnight breeze,
It looks like the holes in the sky;
it sounds like the sounds of silence,
it’s cold like a winter’s night.

You stand surrounded by it,
and you feel the coldness arise.
and you ask yourself in the process:
am I loosing my grip on the light?

You stand with your thoughts
between light and dark.
and what’s left of your sanity
implores you to reach for the light.

But you’ve found that this darkness
has come from your inner mind;
and if you look for a way to dissolve it,
you have to reach into your heart.

And as you peer into the sunlight,
the darkness gathers at your back;
you remember the things you’ve done,
all the secrets you’ve left behind.

And while this may rip your illusions,
the message I give you Is life.
never forget your own darkness
but always strive on for the light.
