917 - Dislocation


Theme Thursday’s prompt is ‘Together’.


Dislocation

Together—
But apart.
The hearts reach out,
But do not touch.
Apart—
But together.
Life is shared
But not much
Is common.
Loneliness
Is subjective.

  1. Very subjective.
    I at least am more often lonely in a crowd than on my own.

  2. Just a writing exercise, right?

  3. I think one can be alone but not lonely and true one can be with others while feeling loneliness. A couple lying in bed can feel separate and not together while another couple can be apart and feel together. I think I really understand what you wrote here and it does make one think. Really thought provoking!

    Happy Theme Thursday and thank you for playing.

    God bless.
