Loneliness

the-road-in-the-woods

The road is empty.
just as it was yesterday
and all the days stretching back
to – when? He can’t remember.
The road to his house,
the road less travelled.
He draws the curtain across the window
shutting out the fading light.
No visitors again today.
Loneliness is an empty road.
