Lonely’s Friend

A SUBLIME AND SUBTLE FIGURE, CLOAKED WITH AN IMPERVIOUS EVIL NATURE GLIDES THROUGH THE ROOM, LEAVING NO IMPRESSION IN THE SHAG CARPET

WITH MUCH DISCERNMENT HE CHOOSES A CANDIDATE AND NONCHALANTLY APPROACHES

“THIS IS WHAT IT IS LIKE TO BE ALONE IN A CROWD. HMP!   WELL, IT CERTAINLY LIVES UP TO THE HYPE.”

THE INTRODUCTIONS HAVE BEEN MADE AND SMOOTHLY.

THERE’S A HUNGER IN HIS VOICE AND PARCHED LIPS IN HIS SMILE

CROWDED HALLS, ROOMS OVERSTUFFED ALLOW EMPTINESS TO PERCH

FALLING BACK  IN TO THE SHAWDOWIEST PLACE,

FADING INTO OBLIVIOUS CONTENTMENT

ECHOS OF HAPPY LAUGHTER AND RESOUNDING JUDGEMENTS OF WORTHLESSNESS FILL THE HALL

“THEY KNOW,” SAYS LONELINESS,” ALL OF YOUR FEARS AND SCREAMS, YOU WEAR THEM LIKE A CAPE…THEY KNOW.  YOU TRY HARD TO HIDE YOUR INSECURITY WITH A SMILE, BUT YOUR AWKWARD BEHAVIOR BETRAYS YOUR WEAK EFFORT.”

SUPER EGO CLIMBS INTO THE CLOSET OF PITY AND SHUTS THE DOOR

EMPTINESS ENTERS…

BLACK TENTACLES ARE UNVEILED IN THE SPACE VOIDED,

LIKE A SCHOOL OF OCTIPI THAT HAVE INTERNALLY PAINTED THE WALLS MIDNIGHT

SHARP BLACK PANGS EASE INTO THE HEART,

THE GRIP IS SUFFOCATING,

MEMORIES OOZE OUT AND SPILL TO THE FLOOR

THEY ARE REPLACED BY IRE AND HEAVY DETERMINATION

EYES GLAZE OVER WITH LISTLESS EMOTIONS REPLACING FORMER UNCERTAIN ONES

BLOOD PUMPS IN TO THE SWELTERING PITCH HEAT AND RETURNS ICY COOL AND YET EXTREMELY COMBUSTIBLE

A VERY POWERFUL WEAPON OF HATE,

WILLING AND READY TO CRUSH EVERY THING CHRISTIAN OR QUASI-CHRIST-LIKE

LOGIC OVER CHRIST,

THE SOWER IS PREPARED TO GO FORTH AND SOW

A SMILE, NO A SMIRK FORMS, CONTORTING TRUE HAPPINESS,

(NEVER KNEW WHAT THAT WAS ANYWAY)

AN INFERNO ENSUES,

A DEEP BLACK FLAME OF HEAT INFLATES FLESH LIKE A BALLON

“YOU DON’T NEEED ANYONE, ALMOST NO ONE, MAN IS AN ….NEVER MIND,” LONELINESS SAYS  GRAVELY BUT YET SOOTHINGLY,” ALL YOU NEED IS YOU, IF YOU AREN’T HAPPY THEN YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE HAPPY.HAHAHA!”

YES, THE SMIRK NOW SMEARED ON TO THE FACE SPREADS TO THE FINGERS, THEY CLUTCH THEMSELVES

“REMEMBER WHAT YOUR FAMILY SAID ABOUT…..,” LONELINESS WHISPERS SO SOFTLY, “YES, AND THE FORMER FEMALE YOUR FINALLY FREE OF…WHAT’D SHE SAY….”

CONSTRUED KINDLING TOSSED IN TO THE FURNACE INCREASING THE RAGING BLAZE,

BURNING BLACKER AND HOTTER

MELDING AND FUSING CONSCIENCE AND EMOTION FORM A (IL) LOGICAL VERSION OF ALL TRUTHS, YET DEVOID OF FEELING

(“AH, MY MASTERPIECE!  I HAVE CREATED A VEHICLE OF SELF-MOTIVATION AND SELF-SUFFICIENCY FUELED BY DISDAIN AND DISTRUST.  IT IS TIME TO UNVEIL IT TO THE WORLD.)

LIFE EVOLVES IN TO A PRODUCT OF INERTIA, A BI-POLAR EFFECT,

TRANSFIGURED BY DEEP AND CURIOUS THOUGHTS, TOO DEEP AT TIMES

YET LONELINESS HAS NEVER LEFT,

IN FACT, SUCCESS IS OWED TO LONELINESS AND HOMAGE TO ITS VAST EMPTINESS

WHETHER ON RESTFUL COUCHES OR LONG DRIVES SEARCHING FOR GOD, SELF OR ANYTHINGLONELINESS HAS BEEN A TRUE FRIEND,

COMFORTING ME WITH EMPTY ARMS, LYING MY HEAD ON IT’S HOLLOW CHEST,

FINDING SOLACE THERE AND TAKING IT TOO

YET, I FIND MYSELF BY MYSELF…

LONELINESS WHERE HAVE YOU GONE?

THERE’S A NEED TO LOATHE, THE FIRE GOETH OUT,

“YOU HAVE FORSAKEN ME!!!”

WAIT…

NO, THE LEAVING WAS ON THIS END,

FORMER FRIENDS ARE (ANTI-) SOCIAL NECESSITIES FOR SELFISH PERSONS,

THEY NO LONGER EXIST HERE

I MUST LEAVE LONELINESS, ALONE.

…………………………………………………………………..

FLUTTERING EYELIDS, WHITE LIGHTS, SORT OF MISTY AND FOG LIKE, MAYBE A DREAM

LYING PROSTRATE ON THE NAKED EARTH,

MUCH LIKE A UTOPIAN OPERATING TABLE,

WARM AND COZY,

SMILING,

THE NUMBNESS, A METAPHOR FOR LIFE

HEAD SWIVELS,

A FLY’S EYE VIEW,

HUNDREDS OF PHYSICIANS, WITH VERY DISTINCT AND FACELESS FEATURES

GLOVELESS GENTLE HANDS

ANESTHESIA DOPINESS GIVES NEW BORN FEELINGS TO ANTITHESISICAL LEGS

SMILING HAS NOT QUIT SINCE THE EXTRACTION,

IT EXPLODES TO INSATIABLE BELLY LAUGHTER.
