Loneliness

It reaches out from within me,
cries, Speak to me!
touch me;shake my hand
pat my shoulder –
Something
to acknowledge I exist
Something
to say I am worthy
of a glance
a smile
Of interaction unencoded

No mere visualization of voice
nor actualization of electric impulses
Prove to me
that we exist together
in this space
this place
this Life

Shake me from
my stupored slumber
and sing to me,
Live!
We are here in this place together
we are more, here, now
than we have been
while we were apart
Let us live, then
while we are intangibly more
and tangibly here
Let us live!
