Loneliness is a state of mind for those who have grown apathetic with it and don't care about the lonely state of mind they are in


Open your hearts and souls to others who have left theirs closed and love will bring you a condominium of two filled with joy.

Why do we always seem to pour out our bottled up emotions far too late. Take for example a beautiful woman or a handsome man that we would like to know better and perhaps even love but our own inhibitions twist our stomachs into knots and tie up our tongues and then allow us to walk away from chances to make friends and or lovers. Does the word "no", or an "I'm not interested in you." really matter that much when there are so many fish in the sea eager to be caught by your eyes? So you will get rejected, it is exactly what should drive you to ask even more ladies or men to consider you as a new friend or lover. You might miss a few dances but hey, that is why God made wallflowers, and both male and female wallflowers are not unattractive, they just have not blossomed yet because they are to shy to mingle. I once had a most incredibly lovely girl ask "me" out? She was a goddess with the looks and body of a fashion model and when I asked her why she was asking me? out, she told me that "Too many guys are afraid to ask her out because they fear she will say no," And so she was left very lonely for a long time. I of course enjoyed her company and felt truly blessed to be with her. Why do we keep what we truly want to say corked up inside us until in desperation thinking our souls might burst we cast out unprepared words, often the wrong ones over our own storms of doubt which color them with unsureity. Pour out your feelings on a page or in a text and read each word over carefully and then memorize the very best of what your thoughts have to offer and then present them to a girl you have an eye on, or that boss you want to ask for a raise. Otherwise your careless words will float away unheard across your ocean of tears. No man or woman should be an island unto themselves, alone is no paradise sipping drinks with no one to talk to and staying home on the weekends with no one to meet. There are millions of shy folks out there just like you all longing for someone else. A paradise of two. You can find them easily enough because it is like looking in a mirror. They don't catch your eyes because they are in fear of rejection. offer them a simple approach and you will see the same need in their eyes as you have in your own. And hey, that is what is called something in common. It's a start that cam lead to a pair of hearts becoming as one. Walk boldly through this world, hold your head up high, dress in ways that others will take notice of. If you feel you are too plain, let me tell you I have seen many a plain gal get a makeover and look abosolutely beautiful. Be confident and it will show. Be kind to everyone and show interest in them. Being single is like shingles It hurts beyond all imagining. Be personable in ways you never have. There are millions of love affairs and marriages out there that involve one who simply loved another's personality. Not everybody is interested in how you look. Many more care deeply for how you interact with them. We all get old and all that lovely and handsome external attraction fades into wrinkles, double chins and grey hairs. it is what is inside that creates a love that lasts forever. Let the whole world know that what is inside you is beautiful and if you don't believe me, try it for two months. Go out there and walk and talk like you are movie stars. Approach others who you can plainly see are shy. Then you can draw them out. Keep trying until you find someone who is looking for someone else as hard as you are. Never give up on yourself, give of yourself in every way to others and you will succeed in them giving you back the same. There are so many left marooned in this world on the rocks of their own choices, some sit pouring vodka over them and simply drown their sorrows, while others are not making themselves available to others. All of this neglect when love is simply a glance, a smile and a few words away, from hungry lips to hungry ears plus gazes into needing eyes that are waiting just about everywhere. Silence is not golden, it is more of a steel muzzle that steals away any hopes for love. Solve the puzzle find someone that fits the gap in your life and completes a most lovely picture. If it sounds too easy, it is because it is! Loneliness is the colors of maroon-ed and many shades of blues, it is pale and unblushing, it squats in grey shadows cobwebbed by time. It is often too yellow to blend with the brown, hazel and sky blue eyes of other lonely souls. It will remain with many who finger-paint their almost colorless tears off of their faces until death paints their loneliness black and they leave this world alone, all alone in this world. driven to fade away simply ease the pain. It is a portrait of all who refuse to restore themselves in more vibrant colors for all who walk among them. Join the living, breathing, precious multitude of lovers everywhere simply by believing you can and you will.

hard to know when to speak and when to stay silent, i am learning bitterly. Lovely to read your work, go easy on the vodka, save a sip for me

Susan Ream from Michigan on August 04, 2010:

Great thoughts MFB .. I grew up with many bottled emotions. My boyfriend .. now hubby urged me to communicate whatever it was that was in my heart. I found I was safe to do so with him. There is freedom in honesty and when you learn to speak the truth in love .. ya just can't go wrong. No man is an island for sure .. an island is lonely and has nothing to offer unless it shares its beauty with another.

Love is not golden,

Loneliness is not blue.

There are no colors,

When there is no you.

Why do we always seem to release

our bottled up emotions far too late.

Did it rain?

Sorry to sully

but sometimes the most simple answer is the best answer

Why do we always seem to release

our bottled up emotions far too late.

Deborah Demander from First Wyoming, then THE WORLD on July 29, 2010:

Again you have captured beauty so simply, yet so profoundly. The main thing that holds us back is fear. Fear of rejection and fear of loss. Thanks for the great write. Love the little kwepie picture.

Namaste friend.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on July 29, 2010:

That picture is worth a thousand words, and the words,

'float away on an ocean of tears' is so beautiful.

Silence is a thought you wished you had spoken

Silence was the last chance you had

before a vow was broken

So the next time you think of something

you wish you had said

Yell it out loud, even if it,s " DROP DEAD "

Kaie Arwen on July 29, 2010:

Beautiful........... best to say what you have to say before you no longer have the opportunity to do so. How many broken hearts and empty souls would be healed and whole if they'd only taken the time to share their thoughts and feelings? Kaie
