Loneliness is having to buy
your own calendars and coffee mugs
and talking to a TV talk host
over ice cream and a paper plate.

Loneliness is a heart that roller coasters
through a humdrum day
finding comfort and solace
in the endless umbilical of a twilight road.

Loneliness is an airmail birthday
and a store window Christmas
punctuated by a relentless search
of tabletops and doors.

for the friendly message
that never comes.

    It's the four walls closing in, the phone that never rings, the doorbell gone unrung, it's a song that has no words, a melody lost in the soul, the beginning of the end....yet time and life move on. Guess you touched a nerve lol Enjoyed your poem and its words ring true. God bless !!
