25 Dec

Is when that single tear trickles down my face
Running over my cheek straight to my chin
Creating a trail, etched like the pain I feel
The pain of loneliness.

Is the silence I hear, my footsteps echoing in the hall
In place of the sounds of your laughter and chatter
The screams that once upon a time shattered
The stillness of loneliness

Is me missing you with every fibre of my being
Daily reminded of the many months that passed
When you resided deep inside of me
And banished loneliness

Loneliness is now
But it will not be forever
