Loneliness

What is loneliness?
Loneliness is a drug.
It tears away dispassion,
Dissolves indifference,
Intensifies all sensibilities beyond reason,
Too despair.

Too despair;
This kind of tortuous fix,
Consumed in protected isolation,
Injected with painful shame
Until all sense of reality
Disperses.

Disperses
Reality’s ugly images and visions
Sacrificing faith and hope
To the sticky dark tide:
Oh to watch love simply float away
Beyond reach.
Beyond reach!
