Loneliness Pares Me to the Bone

Loneliness Pares Me to the Bone

people reach out
human sadness has always affected me
i feel is keenly
and i feel a sense of guilt
what more can be done?
me? I know my limits
i had those lessons when i was young
loneliness,
pares me to the bone
the way we hope is desolate
and longing likes to roam
the feeling,
of abandonment as being abandoned
boundaries,
fall to guilt when under attack
but the pain of people
is all too real
it is fingernails on the blackboard
the way that they feel


James Garratt – May 2018
