Empty Rooms

Empty Rooms

Aloneness may become an immense -  empty room,
from which loneliness can come upon us – much to soon
on the heels of to much -  involved aloneness ! 

This I have come to know, intimately – I must confess,
to touching the fringes of, from time to time,
as can be seen, coming out in my attempts at good rhyme.

    I know what you mean....I have done long isolation..self imposed. The Rhyme was good though, enough to crack a smile. Thanks for the posted poem Much worth the read

    Thank you Scott, for your comments “ Cool ”, “ The Rhyme was good though, ” and for sharing the intimacy associated with your life’s experience. I guess that we, alone “ I have done long, isolation..self imposed ” are not really alone with our alones. Self imposed has never been the choice for me, just old age and circumstance. Then again one can be alone, even in a crowd . B. J. “A” 2 ( Bill . )
