Poem number thirty NaPoWriMo

Loneliness like a cloak

covers you at times

when you long for company

and there is only silence all around


Loneliness counts the hours

when the day is done

in the purple twilight

it hangs so heavy


Loneliness like a lost friend

reaches out for understanding

when the heart is heavy

and silver tears threaten to fall


Loneliness can’t overtake the heart

that still holds hope inside

shake the cloak from you shoulders

cast it aside


bring to mind happy times

let the memories shine

and loneliness will retreat

far away into the shadows of yesterday
