Recently my mind has lamented,
That I no longer truly have friends,
More a rogues gallery of acquaintances,
A revolving door of faces,
Past photos with actors vanishing,
Memories growing more indistinct,
And a painfully icy feeling of seclusion,

It’s a curious kind of solitude,
I have family,
And the love of my life,
Warm aegises to preserve my life under,
Yet all else is cold and barren,
A vacuum of unread messages and meetings dubious,
Existence drags away comrades of old and repels new cohorts,

In this dingy opium den I reside,
I find myself gazing outside wistfully,
I recieve no calls,
And feel no inclination to brave the cold myself,
A vicious circle made of photoframe shards,
Loneliness begets loneliness,
Until it becomes all I am.

    Sending you warm thoughts as we face dastardly cold temps and snow these new few days here in the Midwest. Days where I would like nothing more than to stay covered in warm blankets with a steaming mug of coffee (or hot tea in the evening). Unfortunately tomorrow I have to venture to work. 🥶

      I can only imagine the cold over there right now. It’s bad enough on this little island with the icy winds and a touch of frost! Thank you for the warm thoughts. Sending some your way too and I hope work isn’t too bad for you! ☺️

        Thank you so much my friend! Off this weekend, then dreading Monday. We are to get 4-6 inches of snow here starting tonight through Monday evening. Hubby most likely will be driving me to work. He has a 1979 Ford Bronco which needs some nudging and recharging this weekend, but he has it running again so hopefully it will continue to be “Old Faithful” for us! Lol

        One does hope that it all goes well and your trips to work go well. We don’t get too much snow here fortunately.
