Lonely in a crowded room. That feeling that creeps up on you when you realize that even though there are so many people around you..there isn't actually any one for you. The worst type of loneliness. The oxymoronic loneliness

If Loneliness should come

let it not come when I am in a crowd

Where I am in my place of

imagined acceptance

perceived significance

At that place where I would most expect to be loved



Let me welcome it 

Allow me to prepare myself

In a quiet, dark, empty room

Devoid of life, soul, love

Filled with silence

Distanced from the crowd I'd wish to belong to

Hidden from all that I could long for



Then only should it enter

Appearing as though it had always been here

Make itself the norm


So that...


When I sit

And begin to wonder where it is that I am

Alone I shall feel

And rightly so because,

Alone I shall be
