Loneliness and it's free ride...........Verse

Updated on August 7, 2015

As true loneliness accompanies one's life
the life itself becomes the affliction
We travel to exotic emotions we seek out the reasons
and so alone simply goes with us
It's as if it were there all along
the ultimate free ride

We cannot go anywhere and leave it at home
nor arrive at a new place and leave it there
as if to run from it or to escape
Yes we leave a piece of our alone wherever
we go and we bring it home with us
until it's all one and the same

Until and after all our trials and travels
we come to know
the one part of our heart that
we can never change
and never truly know either
except that we gave it a free ride

      Accepting, embracing and benefiting from our loneliness comes from our maturity. Thanks for laying your thoughts so beautifully.

      There are times I love to be alone but to enjoy alone time not to feel lonely. Ed you reminded me of an old song simply titled Mr. Lonely.

      Ahh, the ultimate free ride! How do you know what's in my head Ed? I just love all your poetry. And, the image you use here is beautiful.

      Sometimes, this free loader can be brutal and it can follow everywhere specially on the ground. That's why I love it in the sky.

      Yah, I say it all the time but it comes straight from the from the sky to you my friend. ~

      Right to the heart of the matter. What I really do not like is when that freeloader shows up when I am celebrating something with family and friends.
