My loneliness

image

My loneliness is very beautiful,
it looks like you.
A little bit like me
but more like you.

My loneliness,
like wax,
keeps on melting
in the furnace of time.
I collected it,
moulded into a figure,
its face
looks like your face.
Not mine.
Only there’s no heat in its breath.
Only there’s no light in its eyes.
Only there’s no sound in its laughter.
Only there’s no truth in its lies.

I don’t wish
to win you anymore.
I can live like this.
I will live like this.
Just tell me once
does your loneliness
also
look like me?
