The loneliest times are not
when someone dies or a 
friendship fades to gray
or even the days when
all are gone or busy and you
haven't heard a human voice
in many hours. No, the loneliest are
being with someone who
is in the same room with you but
really isn't there, body present but
mind off somewhere inaccessible
to you
while you sit there staring at them
nerve endings bleeding
wishing they would somehow engage 
with you besides the occasional
meaningless words, "I love you."


  1. Haunting and so sad! Yes, I think most of us can relate to the disconnect. Well Done~

  2. Wow! So sad and so true! The ending is a shocker!
