I'll always be a HOPEFUL romantic, not a HOPELESS one!!!
If you lived closer, this would be a challenge. I'd have to come over and give you a HUG!The funny thing about this is that just before I clicked over to this, I put in my earphones to listen to Beethoven's 7th - the first 2'30" of which are the most emotional music I listen to. It speaks to solitude, among other things.Then, of course, I read your piece.Right between the eyes.
:) I'll take a rain check on the hug, Lou!! And I know Beethoven's 7th, so I understand totally.
Wow! This hits a little too close to home for me. I really feel your emotions in this haiku.
Seems to be the time of year for this sort of thing!!!
