Lonely Relief

The loneliness is like a deep mud lake.

The depression is like a heavy ball and chain


The ball and chain dissolves

Once you no longer remain

The loneliness is a constant companion but easier to take

As I watch you drive away

The empty space where you were

Filled somehow

In a way I can’t explain

I only know the feeling

No words to describe

After you walked out that door

I have come back to life
