Lethally lonely.

The storm is back again
The rain pierces and trickles down my heart
Wish the wind would just take me away
I just want to depart
I’m drowning in a sea of people, and none of them will pull me up
I’m tripping over kerbs
Why won’t anyone stop
After hours of treading, I just don’t have strength anymore
I’m tired, exhausted, and my soul is growing sore
Sore are my eyes from crying
They sting as if with chlorine in them
No point in washing them out, only to start weeping again
Loneliness is my best friend
Silence is my sister
Isolation is kin to me
Abandonment is my mister
The only thing to comfort me is the pitter pattering my head makes like the sounding of a drum
It pokes and punches my temples
Like a foetus twisting around
It’s the only music I dance to
The only radio thats turned on
It’s monotonous and repetitive
The only tune thats sung

God sets the lonely in families, he leads out the prisoners with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.
Psalm 68:6
