I said, hello Mr Solitary Man,
do you still feel like lonely?
No, he said. You’re with me
now, that’s why I’m not alone
I said, but I’m far from you.
Yes, but not far from my heart,
Oh, you’re a poet, I said. No,
he said, not I but you are.
It’s amazing he found me – and
I hadn’t a clue how it would
turn out to be!
As by chance it actually happened
Mr Solitary Man and Miss Lonely
met on internet!
And – so far it seems to work just
fine for the two!
But is it true? Yes – and yes but
Mr Solitary were never alone, no
matter how he once felt. And my
solitude is based in the solid rock.
I like to be alone sometimes, but
I don’t like to feel lonely, he told
me. Yes me neither, I said.
But love is like a butterfly, you
can’t catch it with your needs.
And Miss Lonely can hardly be –
in spite she’s lonely, a cut flower
to put in an unworldly love story.
