Loneliness

Loneliness

written by: Paeansunplugged

 

We have been friends for quite sometimes
I don’t remember exactly
when you quietly slipped
your fingers through mine
but Loneliness, it took me
a long time to accept you
when memories hanging from
broken lampshades and upturned stools
threatened to unravel me
you came to my rescue
sitting by my bedside
as I feverishly trembled
at being abandoned
you helped to remove the
cobwebs of relationships,
wiped clean the slate of love
and helped build a fence around my heart
soothing me with soft murmured words
I realise now, with you in my embrace
I don’t need anyone
