your sorrowful eyes
pierce through my heart
it pains me to see you like this
where did the sunshine go from your face
or those laughters
they’re all gone
i know you’re going through a difficult period
but it’s called a period because
it has a beginning and an ending
this suffering, too, will pass
just like any other trial time in your past
but what about the loneliness, you ask
what to do about it, you want to know
my dear, loneliness is part of you
like you said it yourself
it’s been right there with you the whole time
since you were a child
do you really want it to go?
do you know what it’s like without it?
do you know how to live without loneliness?
what will you replace it with?
don’t answer yet
when you’re not ready
