It is alone in a field devoid of comforting color.
Surrounded by a sea of incongruous behavior 
choking life from sparse recollection.

Alone as to confirm existence beyond 
the confines of natures ability to balance.

Rooted deeply,
resembles, nutrient poor soil failing to sustain;
panged by malnourishment of 

Alone destined to wither and finally, to succumb.
The only survivor, incongruous behavior. 
Loneliness, alone, ever alone.

    Loneliness nices defined. I think loneliness exists in loneliness. Once it is shared, it evaporates, Mac.
