First poem in seven day challenge: "Monologue" by Sergio Sergio Antonio Ortiz, thank you for the invitation Chinedu Jonathan Ichu


One word explains another.
Take "loneliness", it’s a gap
or a stone falling into the void,
even the air hurts and walking
is not enough, sleep dies
but you sleep. Loneliness is to search
for your height, your exact size, in others,
or rather it’s to divide yourself
to form a broad chorus of nothingness.
What horrible loneliness
is in the one who begs for affection
by blemishing tenderness. Let laughter
be laughter and hatred be hatred,
and a man be a man
above all miseries.
