Do you think your’s the only heart, the only mind, the only soul trapped in a prison of loneliness?

Loneliness? Oh yes, like the feeling when you lay in your lover’s arms, but only sadness embraces you.

Loneliness? Those endless endings that parade through our lives making us fear we will never be whole.

Loneliness? That familiar companion that is always there, waiting for us as each new attempt at love dies.

My lonely friend, I know and feel that emptiness, as surely as my heart beats and I draw breathe.
