The Emptiness of Loneliness

Lorraine Wilde

The emptiness of loneliness
Drags me down into the depths
Of despair and isolation.
It is a hole that can never be filled,
A void that can never be healed.
It is a darkness that engulfs me,
A loneliness that consumes me.
It is the emptiness of loneliness
That leaves me feeling lost and alone.
