What Is Lonely

What Is Lonely

Lonely is spending a week with friends
Feeling good
Then leaving and feeling the wall again

Lonely is telling yourself to talk to God
He listens
But the ache returns nonetheless

Lonely is making plans with friends
They fall through
And a battle of emotions ensues

Lonely is knowing your feelings are extreme
You should be ok
But you’re just not, to your chagrin

Lonely is telling yourself to call someone
Maybe you will
But it won’t satiate the ache for long

Lonely is knowing you must feel your feelings
In fullness
Before you’ll ever find the other side
