The art of friendship is becoming lost. we are lonely because we forget that to not be alone we must give more of ourselves than most of us are willing to give.

i could not agree more! it's a sad, sad cycle that has become commonplace in modern society. people are too afraid of getting hurt to give more of themselves.

interesting. you think people are withdrawing into themselves because they are afraid of getting hurt? i think its more that they are selfish, wrapped up in a little bubble where its all about them.

but perhaps our outlooks are part of the reason why your writing kicks ass and i am left feeling envious, lol.

just my personal opinion! it may vary between individuals though, with some following your perspective. and nah, to each their own! it's great to have differing points of view :]

Agreed. I always enjoy listening to other peoples opinion. Provided, of course, that the opinions are shared and equally respected.
I admit that my perspective on people is, perhaps, a little cynical and jaded.

true enough. i sometimes wish i was a little less jaded but i seldom count on people doing anything they are supposed to.

People are alone because we can never know what one another are thinking. I feel this is a terrible failing in life :(

i think this is extremely true, but i also value having privacy in my mind. i feel like if everyone possessed the power to read minds, we would have some much bigger issues on hand ^^;

Also true, but having the option to be able to convey completely accurate and truthful emotions or thoughts to people would be amazing :l

Question: How do you get the vertical gray lines on the left side of each stanza? They're really cool looking and I'd like to be able to use them. Thanks! :D

we grapple with the differences between loneliness & solitude -

as i look back on every night i've lost sleep, it's true through and through.

Absolutely stunning.

Everything from the words to even the layout, echoes loneliness.
The spacings between the stanza almost embody how all of us individuals feel such a deep loneliness, despite being so close to one another.

Of all the stanzas and lines, my favourite has to be:

and i'm falling
like coins-
rusted and fading,
forever switching owners
forever out of place


Also, I really enjoy how the quote by Heath Ledger wraps up the piece. Once again, this is a really, lovely piece.

&that stanza seems to be quite popular haha :aww:
