The Loneliest Words

I’ve enjoyed writing for many years. I'm dedicating more time to the craft in my retirement days.

The Loneliest Words

The loneliest words are not those

Which are unread

They are those

Which are unwritten

Forever unseen

Forever unspoken

Unknown in posterity

In perpetuity

Having never had a life

Known living

Known existence

Experienced being

Experienced the joy of being shared

Or the potential to be shared

To be seen

Heard

Known

Posited for posterity

In perpetuity

With vigor

Breathed into them

Every time they are

Viewed

Said

Within range of a listening ear

Such a tragic fate

May it never befall

The words on the tip of your brain

On the tip of your pen

On the tips of your fingers

Instead

Let them be seen

Heard

Known

Posited

Right here

Let them live

And have the company

Of however many

Or however few

Choose

To make their acquaintance

Let them be written

Write them

And they will never be lonely
