Loneliness is Layers

Walls

Isolation inside the layers of walls

Walls and layers of skin

Air

Race

Ethnicity

Faith or lack of Faith in this or that

Sex

Sexuality

Family or lack of family

A crowd of

A few of 

FRIENDS 

Or lack of friends

Or that empty realization that the friends we had

Are just another wall of illusion enveloping us in 

A loneliness

Loneliness 

Our loneliness we can sometimes feel it layer

Of fabric

A room we wrap around ourselves

A room wrapped around us by the world

By people

A wall of ghosts living around us

Ghosts of flesh

We scream at them from inside 

But they cannot hear us

They cannot hear us through all the layers

And often, 

Their loneliness

Deafens them to our cries

And we,

Their’s.
