LonelinessLoneliness is a state of mind.
One can feel lonely in a crowd;
Even in a relationship one can feel isolated;
Or content when alone and occupied.
But being alone, inactive and restless,
one can feel rejected and imagine a lack of caring.
Even the company of lighthearted folk
does not always chase away the deep-felt need
to be close and loved by one special person.
Oh to be cherished once more! Honoria A. Groves
