Why oh why my dear Loneliness do you never let me sleep?

I love you dearly but I don’t like you at all.

Because your presence is great, yet too small.

Your hands never touch

Your lips never kiss

Even a whisper would bring me bliss

I have a trick, a trick up my sleeve, “someone’s coming Loneliness, hurry up, leave!”

so she hides away,

as long as they stay,

sometimes a moment,

sometimes all day

But when a night falls and the stars grace the sky,

Here she comes creeping

Why oh why?

-Jeremiah Cherry
