    A tangling twisting gut
    wrenching emotion this loneliness
    It comes by from time to time
    just to show me it's still there
    it aches and aches until
    the pain has nothing left to devour
    Loneliness
    What the hell is it good for
    even in small doses
    it kills
    Like the worse poison in
    a tiny old blue  bottle
    uncorked by gloved hands
    and fed to me
    while I sleep

    So, just out of curiosity. . .why do you post poetry in the forums sometimes and not as a hub?  Not that it isn't a good read either way, mind you.

    The mind is loosing
    The race toward sanity.
    What is winning instead?
    The people are loosing
    The rule of humanity.
    What is winning instead?
    Nonsense and folly
    Are winning the race.
    Babylon rules
    In humanity's place.
    What will the future
    Hold for us?
    What will the future
    Hold for the bee?
    What shall we do
    With too much creativity?
    What shall we do
    To regain command?
