Sensei, tell me about loneliness

Loneliness is the moment one decides to settle because there are no good men out there

Loneliness is the moment one chooses to shed their own skin, only to wear rose thorns because love hurts

Loneliness is the moment one gives up their real desires, because one cannot have it all

Loneliness is the moment one decides to keep quiet, fearing they might upset their lover

Loneliness is the moment one decides to swallow poison because that’s what is expected in love

Now that you know how I feel about loneliness Sensei, tell me about loneliness

Sensei answered:

“Loneliness is the inability to open your heart because you believe every lover will hurt you.

Loneliness is the inability to see love for what it is in fear of being heartbroken

Loneliness is the inability to let love in

Loneliness is the guard of armor around your heart

Loneliness is the gun you are carrying, even when the intruder has left the building

Loneliness is the inability to forgive yourself and the lover who broke your heart

Loneliness is the cold bed you keep stripping

Loneliness is the inability to let one in”

Thank You Sensei
