Loneliness – Poem


by Emma Doyle
Sept 29th, 2016



It’s a quiet desperation

The intimacy we long for

With yearning trepidation

Hearts lay trembling on the floor


Each solitary night we lay

With loneliness’s thundering silence

Begging for sleep to end the day

To quell the relentless tyrant


Is it enough to know we’re already found,

That someones tracking our every move?

Must the one who loves us endlessly prove,

That we’ve been heard, every cry, every sound?
