The Protest Against Loneliness
The Protest Against Loneliness1 min 335 1 min 335
My earphones came apart yesterday
Refusing to entwine into a single wire..
My rainbow socks now refuse an united stay
So do my shoe laces and my motorbike tyres..
My phone changed the security pattern by itself
It’s no more a fancy star - it’s a plain, single dot..
The keys on my laptop have begun to drift apart
And my new shopping limit - only 1 item per cart..
My favourite fountain pen does not accept its cap
Asia and Europe have gotten separated in my map..
The buttons in my formal shirts simply snap
And my pant zippers embarrassingly leave a gap..
All my ceiling fans rotate now with a single blade
My pillow and blanket lie at opposite poles like a bed unmade..
My music playlists have become a one-song charade
My alarm doesn't allow 'snooze' anymore - it's only a single, loud tirade..
My material world seems to be in a strong protest
Demanding me to invite in a new guest..
I understand it is my loneliness that they detest
But doesn't my healing heart need some more rest?
