Loneliness

Loneliness

I had better come

to know you

as friend

for without the capacity

to know you

how can I bear to know

and be myself?

Loneliness

you send me running

when I was young

and as I grew

not knowing who you truly were

and had to teach me about myself

about the world

and what happened

that cut me to ribbons

Loneliness,

hello

you are full

of my rejected

displaced self

and if I truly wish to heal

I had better come to know you

and embrace you as my friend

for loneliness in so many ways

you are the gateway

into my soul
