Your loneliness so quickly.
Let it cut more
Let it ferment and season you
As few human
Or even divine ingredients can.
Something missing in my heart tonight
Has made my eyes so soft,
My voice so
My need of god
Loneliness is not the most comfortable emotion. Most of us reach for something to distract us from it, sweets, conversation with another, a TV show or movie…..anything to keep us from feeling it. These words suggest that if we really allow ourselves to let the loneliness cut more deeply, we might find ourselves reaching for connection – to our Higher Power, or Great Spirit or God. What might we find, if we have the courage to really feel loneliness?
We might fine Peace or Joy or Inspiration – all things that can then lead us to be our bigger and best selves. It might just be worth it.
