ONLY A MOMENT OF YOUR TIME
There’s a funny thing about loneliness.
It’s so ever present that sometimes
you know you’re going to be consumed
It doesn’t matter who’s around
or how gay you appear to be,
it’s there lurking in your heart.
Waiting for a moment when you
feel genuine joy,
loneliness pounces upon it
leaving behind only despair,
sincerely trying to be happy,
but it is always just out
of your reach
like an elusive lover.
Until finally one day
you forfeit your quest for joy.
You just surrender.
And at that moment you realize
what loneliness really wanted.
It just wanted you to sit with it
for a while.
To enjoy its’ company.
And once you stop fighting against it
you see it’s not so bad after all.
It just has a bad rep.
And it’s there,
in your epiphany that your elusive lover
finally falls under your spell and
you consummate your relationship.
Yet in your blissful state you forget
how you got there.
And there loneliness is…
