Can miles truly separate you from friends....If you want to be with someone you love, aren't you already there?

“Language... has created the word "loneliness" to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word "solitude" to express the glory of being alone.” Paul Tillich

They say that hearts go fonder, when friends are apart....for me....distance leaves an empty  me, and a lonely you....
This loneliness....I swear at times I feel....I'm dying from the inside out....
can’t hide from the piercing ache in my gut....the undying ache for love....for real friendship....
There is a huge difference between being alone and being lonely, in my opinion. I can be alone and feel quite content; in fact I have times where I prefer to be alone. I can think in peace then. But being lonely is horrible.

I know the night is not the same as the day, that all things are different, that the things of the night cannot be explained in the day, because they do not then exist, and the night can be a dreadful time for lonely people once their loneliness has started....and I hate nights.

Most of the time I don't mind being quiet. Most of the time I like being alone.Tonight is not most times.Tonight I'm lonely and irritated with myself for feeling that way. But much as the rest of humanity tends to annoy me....tonight I wish I had someone to talk to….I hate being lonely tonight. 
 I don't know whether you understand as to just how much you mean to me. I crave to be with YOU so badly, I just don't know if I can take much more of this anymore....I would give anything right now to hold you, I feel so unloved,and unwanted, it doesn't feel good….I think I'd kill for a hug right now....
 But I hope we'll be friends forever, hold on to the memories. And one day when we part our ways, we'll think back to the past and remember about how happy we are 'because our friendship will last forever.

- I make this solemn promise to you -
To be your lover when you need to be loved,
your doctor when you are ill, 
your army when you go to war,
your umbrella when life rains down on you,
your rock when you get weary,
your shield when you need defense,
your spirit when you are drained,
your pillow when you need to rest,
your voice when no one can hear you,
your ear when no one will listen,
your comfort when you feel pain,
your hero when you are under duress,
your sunshine when darkness falls,
your answer when questions arise,
your inspiration to overcome obstacles,
your hand to hold when you are frightened,
your kiss that wakes you everyday,
and your "I love you" each and every night.
I am yours... all of me.  - Tyr Annassassi -

  1. It is TRUE....loneliness and alone are two different things.We can choose to be alone and still be happy...because we know there are people who care for us.....but being lonely in the other hand is like there is a big vaccum in your life...Like you are standing alone in the path of life.We all need a hand to hold and walk the path.♥ is all that we need.

    Loved it Alpana :D

  2. Beautiful..and from your heart.

  3. Reading it I could sense the loneliness in you my dear friend. I know exactly what you mean. You have expressed it so beautifully. Loneliness and being alone. Oh how loneliness can eat at you!

  4. wonderful.....quite felt the same reading it...but i tell you what? i feel as writer. you shouldn't feel lonely....let any damn soul you miss or any one leaves you feeling lonely, your words shall never deprive your company...thats the beauty of writing...:)

  5. Alpana,there is no one like you,who can do justice to relationships.

  6. That You, were the one that made me strong; you made me stand up on my own, with every cruel intention, you helped me find my independence. Yeah it's all because of you, that i have the strength i do, to turn my pain to passion, instead of crashin'....can't see you in pain..

  7. Alapana - while feel and touch rules - at the absence of that why not be happy for the connection one has found otherwise. Yes a steaming hot cup of coffee and a face to face conversation is what we all desire but imagine if we didn't even have each other over the net.... what a disaster that would be... Lets thank god for small mercies and be happy. another reason to be happy - you look damn cool when you smile : )

  8. Very moving and heart felt! Thanks for sharing your deepest feeling and thoughts. Your honesty is moving!

  9. This is how i dream to write, awesome just awesome :)

  10. Whoever your speaking to is a very lucky person. Wishing you the best.
    Keep well

  11. Oh my! Your words touched my soul, moved me and inspired me... Loneliness is longing, being alone is a solitude....We feel lonely because we are alone and longing is our company but being alone is a gift, that is when we find inner peace... Whatever that is, love is all around... Just embraced it...:) Thank you for sharing Alpana..;)

  12. this really your can you express something so beautifully...

  13. a couple of years from now i won't remember this pain.i'll remember the memories. I'll forget this heartache n tears will left wid time spent...

  14. Very very beautiful write up :) Stay blessed!

  15. I agree with Mitr when she says, enjoy the bond of love which you share with your friends. Loved your post, Alpana, and could feel your pain and loneliness. Smile, life is beautiful.

  16. Alphana, very beautiful and yet sad. It tugs at my heart strings.

  17. Very nice!! It's important to be alone sometimes, but dont be lonely Alpu, we're all there with you always in spirit! And that special someone (the soulmate that Lucks talks about) cant be far away! :)

  18. There is beauty in relationships, and there's beauty in words. You in this article have brought them all together. I hope you don't mind me using this quote: "The most wonderful of all things in life, I believe, is the discovery of another human being with whom one's relationship has a glowing depth, beauty, and joy as the years increase. This inner progressiveness of love between two human beings is a most marvelous thing, it cannot be found by looking for it or by passionately wishing for it. It is a sort of Divine accident." Sir Hugh Walpoe

  19. Loneliness and being alone are definitely 2 different things. As you said, you can be alone and not lonely, and you can be lonely even in the presence of someone. Love your post, Alpana!
