Loneliness is my friend



Loneliness is my friend
Who can argue with that?
Not always been that way
There was another time
Gladly kissing in twilight
Those delicate moments
Grazing on each other
Fingers curling tufts of hair
Laughing, munching one apple
Wet bodies in the sea
Ripples of tenderness
Gentle touches on the wrist
Gladly promising lies
Such soft sweet words are said
That one black day will break 
The others poor sad heart
Yes, I remember then
The sky finally falls
For there is no heaven
For those that lost their love
Loneliness is their friend

  2. What a poignant and tightly woven poem..the images are vivid..the feeling aches..i suppose loneliness can become a friend..we can put it in a dress..call it a name but essentially i suppose we are filling a void..i think there is heaven for all..or at least the knowledge that we can create a final dream of our own choosing..but not for a while yet

  3. There is no personal grief quite like a broken heart, or a failed relationship. It takes it out of you, as you have described so well.

  6. Considering loneliness as a friend is a way of accepting a broken / lost relationship. Cheer up :-)

    Happy New Year, Robin.

  9. Very touching... sometimes loneliness can be a temporary friend until another is found!

  10. There is sadness in your poem and maybe loneliness is a friend that helps you through a time of brokenness.

  12. "there is no heaven
    For those that lost their love"

    Those words reach so deeply... It reminds of the people and things I've lost through the years, of how I will never replace them (I don't want to... when it comes to them, "loneliness [seems to be] my friend"), too.

  14. I hope that's not a taste of what's to come for me. The last four words gave me the shivers.

  18. Believe me its hard to develop a friendly relationship with 'loneliness' however once done. You do have a true friend

    Happy New Year Robin

    Much love...

  19. Yes, that is loneliness, losing not just one's beloved, but those moments, the closeness, the touching, the exchange of understanding glances....sigh. Beautiful, Robin. But at least we had those times, my friend. We were blessed.

  22. For those that lost their love
    Loneliness is their friend

    There is no point to lament but to accept realities in most types of relationships. Just get on with life and good things will come one's way. Great principle to follow!

  24. Sad. But the memory/imagery of touch and nibbling is also a good one. It makes the loneliness palpable.

  25. Loneliness is my friend too... For i have lost those moments you have described... But then, life moves on and we learn to transform painful loneliness into blissful solitude!

  26. This is sad. I don't think loneliness is ever a friend, but I know it can be an unwanted companion. I do like how you describe loss after such joy. Nice.
