Loneliness stopped by for a while....
bringing silence as his companion.
The wind whistled shrilly through the door.....
“Tell him to go back !
He is not your friend for evermore !”
I watched him as he made himself comfortable,
stopping the clock’s chime.
Dark corners began to have a life of their own, dancing in delight...
flickers of light , so merry, so sad....
The silence settled down into corners and nooks
breathing heavily, for it was cold.
An icy breeze filled the house,
swaying the curtains in out.
A dreary pace now had life.
There were no cries, no strife.
A calmness that held anger in chains bound.
Ah ! I heard Loneliness had stopped by,
I had to say good bye.
It wasn't my fight ....
