The Thursday Think Tank #57 - Loneliness

The world that
exists in your mind
doesn't exist in mine.
So we are lonely people,
you and I.

Even when we share
our innermost thoughts,
reveal naked our souls,
there is a barrier
that separates us;
you are you
and I am I.

Perhaps we can understand
each other's thoughts fully;
we can't live them.

Bubbles become
one with the ether,
with each other
only when they burst.

  2. Beautiful, we are either connected to each other or, we are not, when we meet the right one, we feel it in our soul.
    Your prose is wonderful and image filled. I saw the bubble pop!

  3. You are wise beyond your years. Truly, every journey is traveled alone....but we can strive to understand each other's journeys.

  4. Islands in the sea, connected by ships that sail across desolate seas. The choice of finding oneness is just that... a choice.
