Loneliness births need

Alone again, I sit quietly,

I put the tablet down from reading,

Looking around at my empty room,

In need,  but not knowing what it is. 

Is it hunger? Is it warmth?

A human touch put forth?

This Need unfulfilled, 

And I don't even recognize it.

What it is I cannot say,

Yet I feel it growing everday.

A sad lament for what?

Something that I haven't got.

As obvious my Loneliness,

Is to blame, like a coldness 

Without a Flame.

In so few words, you've summed up feelings we all share even when in a room full of people. A natural thing, I'm sure, and okay, as long as we keep moving forward for better days and hoping for what tomorrow may bring.

It is hard to describe the longing to connect in a way meaningful, but you've summed it up far better than I could. Thank you for expressing it so well and sharing that gift with us. :)

Thank you Amy! I was feeling the melancholy, being stuck inside and without much human contact during this pandemic is maddening. I'm so glad to have met new friends like you! Happy Holidays Bella!
