the way of loneliness

he chose the way of loneliness,
to feel wide open spaces,

to hide his many-sorrowed heart,
and guess, from people’s faces

the things that they might hide, as well;
by shore, on hill, in gym —

he chose the way of loneliness,
or maybe,
it chose him

  1. Reblogged this on Peter's pondering and commented:
    Another “beleaguered” masterpiece which may resonate with some. I like to be alone, but never feel lonely when I am. I suppose I am extremely lucky in that. I know that loneliness can be really difficult for some, who feel alone even when surrounded by the hubbub of life!
