Entry 8619- All my friends are lonely / Pt. 1

Notes from the inside

This inner world;

We show each other these as best as we can,

Trying not to miss anything important

If I’m not paying attention,

You may slip.

I can’t catch you

If I don’t know

Where you’ve gone, inside.

We rescue ourselves and

This is understood,

But the fact that I want to

Have expressed that

Am invested in

Your retrieval from the rough edge of the landscape

I’ve only mapped with your clues

Over coffee

With a mutual friend

In time thinking of you

Is what holds you back like a balcony railing from

That void at the unimagined fringe of the plane you’ve traveled

Scarier still than our share world, for it is pure darkness

All my friends are lonely

Because what is inside is so vibrant

And outside there is no time

But what we can spare for each other

A blessing

A pity
