Loneliness

I have no pretty words to describe the ache,

the empty place where someone should be.

I have to platitudes to ease the afflicted,

We must simply be lonely until

the loneliness stops. We listen

to our heartbreak songs and secretly

cry anytime we get the chance

until the loneliness is finally purged.

This is the only way I know.
