The loneliness
Is between the where
And between the tear

    Now this is clever use of language, Mark, to take the rhyme of ‘where’ (as in belonging) and ‘tear’ and then imply ‘tear’ as ‘tea’ (as in crying for the loss of belonging), if that makes sense to you! An emotional and sensitive piece. Great work!

      You are making perfect sense. Christine and I had that very conversation so really pleased it was effective. Thanks Chris.

    The play on words going on at the end of the second and third line… nice! 😉

      Thanks Tony – as I said to Chris Nelson I am pleased people have responded as I’d hoped.

    Great- both to the visual and the double meanings to the words. The empty spaces, the cracks– lots of room for loneliness there.

    Like a lightning strike embedded in the wall…
    it’s energy long gone.
