a note about loneliness

  R.M. Rilke - Loneliness
Being apart and lonely is like rain.
It climbs toward evening from the ocean plains;
from flat places, rolling and remote, it climbs
to heaven, which is its old abode.
And only when leaving heaven drops upon the city.

It rains down on us in those twittering
hours when the streets turn their faces to the dawn,
and when two bodies who have found nothing,
dissapointed and depressed, roll over;
and when two people who despise eachother
have to sleep together in one bed-

that is when loneliness receives the rivers...


  1. The photo and the poem are beautiful, however they're also pretty sad...

  2. I like it, because it actually shows that people can fell lonely even when there are those around us that just want us to fell good.

    In another note, I have received your postcard last week! It was just what I was needing, I have been going through very hard times and it was refreshing to hear news from you. Can I send my postcards to your old address? (:

    Stay well,
