A Question On The Modern Day Lonely.


It is not for me you understand,

the question of loneliness,

of solitude unasked for,

of isolation, perhaps enforced,

cut off from plans, talk, conversation,

chewing the fat

with no one

but me, the solitary figure;

it is not for me I seek an answer

on being lonely,

I’m just asking for a friend.
