Smoke Screen

Loneliness is but a disease of the many
Trying to find that special connection
Be it within or go without
It is a feeling gnawing deep inside
Trying hard to get out

It is soul lamenting on the what if
big dreams popping may never come
Your mind, your socialization, your goals
get in the way, they cause you loss and pain
that only you can explain

You must be honest with yourself
For, I do not believe you are
It is the cause of derivatives unmet
it is a fantastic mystery
how the case goes unsolved

Loneliness is only a figure of speech
we are all searching for that unknown
could it be a someone or something more
your mind knows your destiny obscene
It is the conscious that lives behind a smoke screen
