The Loneliness



She was skinny, says the jean

all worn out and ripped

She had bad eye sight, says the glasses

missing one lens


She had a husband, says the bow tie

at the bottom of a drawer

She also had a child, says the toy car

sealed in a box.


No one was able to comfort her, says the door

with spider webs in one corner

No one wanted to comfort her, says the empty hallway

not even a single person
