Can anyone be blamed for not knowing
The loneliness of another soul?
Loneliness doesn’t show like a spot
On your chin, or a lip with a cold sore
Loneliness is deep within,
Hidden from view.
Loneliness is yours alone to live with
To make a friend of
Because it is the only thing that is constant in your life.
Take your loneliness by the hand
And say we will go out tonight
Loneliness says I would rather stay in
But be firm and insist and may be
At the end of the night
Loneliness will say
I enjoyed that but I felt a bit invisible
