I'm just a little lonely.
He said with something approaching a smile on his face,
And something approaching bitterness in his voice.
Is it so taxing?
Are you so needy?
Is it so much to wish for?
When alone, I find company is something I can do without,
But it is hard to close your eyes after a day lived in silence,
Without admitting that while
A companion may not be something you need,
It is something you want,
Which is to say you might not always get it.
And I wonder on how to weigh this,
And I dismiss my ponderings as irrelevant,
But I must admit, that there is a part of me that is less than well,
When I am even a little lonely.
