Lonely

Sometimes I love the lonely.
This solitary feeling.
The internal longing.
Waiting for her.
My heart's anticipation.
I feel the emptiness and quiet of our room.

I wonder, is she thinking of me?
Feeling lonely as well?
Am I far from her mind?
Wait this isn't so great, 
the walls are closing in.
I feel my heart beginning to ache.
Ring! Ring!
"I miss you Sweetie" she makes me smile a happy lonely smile.

    This is very sweet, Rick! You capture feelings of yearning and longing so very well. Love is so bittersweet, n'est-ce pas?

    I've heard it said "absence makes the heart grow fonder" and I believe it's true, to a point ... but not too long of an absence ... a phone call is so nice coming at just the perfect moment, right? Nice job, Richard, I can relate to this.

    3 days maximum! Phone calls definately help.

    A smile that senses completion. Yet, that piece/peace is not in front of that smile. I feel this so much.
