Am I Alone

Sometimes aloneness
sears my eyes
tickles my nose
strangles my throat.
Sometimes the weight of it
breaks my back
shoots my legs out from under me
weakens my reach
and renders me useless
in my thoughts
my will
my emotions.
It runs me over
wears me out
and knocks me under

  1. You are somehow in my head. When I’m standing awkwardly and painfully alone somewhere, these are the exact same thoughts that cross my mind. Beautifully put!
