The silence of the room surrounds me.
The click of the clock, the hum of the lights.
The background noise that is usually so comforting.
It serves now only to emphasis the loneliness.
The fact that I am all alone.
All my friends have left.
Either by choice or circumstance I am not for sure.
They are scattered across the country.
A quick phone call, an occasional card.
Then we forget.
The times that we shared just a memory.
Their lives move on, but mine stands still.
The loneliness blankets me in darkness.
Is there a way out? I
am sure there must be.
A new friend, a brief conversation, the light at the end of the
Will this loneliness subside?
Will the light come back into my life?
Only time will tell.
