Loneliness is Okay and Not
Mental loneliness is another thing But physical loneliness is Hard to handle because It's okay to not have someone You can cuddle with and yet You can give yourself a mental note That it's not compulsory in life. But physical loneliness has A very ugly face. Suppose, you're suffering from 102° F fever and nobody to Bring you a glass of water, It sucks your life. You can have lunch on a restaurant alone And it's not a big fuss But you will realize the need Of someone when you are In shop for grocery and You see someone else's dear one, Helping each other in their buying. We all need space and it's true, But that space should end somewhere. Otherwise you'll be lost. Again, emotional loneliness Maintains no certain rules. For instance, you can feel Vacant in your so-called partner's bosom And content when they are absent. You can feel lonely when in a crowd And filled when alone literally. It can swap with the literal Meaning of loneliness. And it's because loneliness is Not the disappearance of people; It's just a feeling or a vibe.
