The feeling of loneliness has been sitting with me for so long, we have become companions,

Its comforting warmth wraps around me every night, reminding me of the void I feel,

Trying to navigate the array of new emotions I never thought I would be feeling,

Loneliness engulfs me and let’s me know I am not alone, I am safe to feel the depth of its sentiment,

I knew I would get to know myself more deeply and I can only thank it for that.
