What does loneliness sound like?
Like the weight of a heavy heart stroking the silence
and hoping for a sound.
Deny the empty space between, stare into the void and stand firm.
A soul is a soul and deserves to be seen,
Not hidden by a silent scream.
Do your bit to stamp out loneliness, smile at someone who needs it and listen out for the silent hellos.

  1. I’d be very happy to smile at you any time you like.
    Thank you for coming over and leaving a comment at my blog.
    Sorry, I don’t twitter but I blog. A lot.

    Congratulations on joining the noisy world of the blogosphere where nobody stays lonely for long.
    Good luck and keep at it. I shall now scroll down and see what else there is.

  2. Love this, so brilliant. Always amazes me how one can be lonely when surrounded by people, a smile can be the difference between hope and despair!
