  • Sometimes in the quietest place,
    loneliness is not felt as
    when one is surrounded by
    heavy breathing, the silent
    dreams of others. Blissful,
    in their forgetfulness of the
    day that has past.

    And you sit in your room,
    silent, mistakenly hearing
    your name (what's in a name).
    Searching through
    the heavy breathing,
    only to realize that the
    half-uttered word was only a figment
    of your own silent dream.
