Lonely
Looking at an empty room.
Listening to silence.
Lips utter words unheard.
Longing for companionship.
Lingering thoughts cause your
Loss of control. You contemplate
Life. Is it worth living?

      I will not say BUT it was dark. It was good and dark. I too had a second of concern for you because I have experienced those things and could have written that a year ago. Job well done.

      No apology necessary, Cleo. It's nice to know there are people out there with concern for others. :)

      My apologies if that came off the wrong way! I wanted to make sure things were alright because sometimes you never know if it's just a prompt or if something deeper is going on. I'm glad you're doing well and you can really feel the emotion in your writing. C:

      Yes, Cleo. All is fine. I actually wrote this to be dark for a writing contest a few years ago. I am not at all lonely in my life. Thanks for reading and for your concern.

      Nice little poem, Molly. Yes, life is worth living. Loneliness doesn't last forever.

      This seems very dark. Is everything okay?
