Loneliness

Little disturbs the silence of my solitude
As loneliness engulfs me
As visible, as palpable
as any fog anyone ever saw.

It soaks into my soul;
It distorts and clouds my vision.
I can't see people and things.
I can't see life clearly, realistically.
Loneliness constrains me
and prevents others from seeing me.

Sometimes, sometimes the sun of another's kindness,
Of a kindness I have done to them, burns through
And surely as the sun will rise tomorrow, 
I know it will again.
But tonight—tonight's a chilly, gloomy night.
I find no comfort or warmth.

    Thank you, Zahara. I read a couple of your poems and they are somewhat in the same vein as a couple of mine, I think. You'll find other of my poems much brighter in tone.
