Alone

Alone, adj. In bad company.

In contact, lo! the flint and steel,
By sharp and flame, the thought reveal
That he the metal, she the stone,
Had cherished secretly alone.

Thanks for the inspiration, Manjusha

Not one's ideal end game following a night out.

Doug said...

Karma, that's where all my enemies live.

Sar, wait'll you're my age.

Sar said...

and that would be?

Doug said...

Oh, Sar, I knew shouldn't have gone there. Seven years older than your brother. I think my profile is transparent.

in the best company: myself

Doug said...

Good for you, Andria. "In good company" was the first draft this morning. I feared people would think I was in a good mood and wonder why, since I look nothing like a blowpop. Well...

You really feel alone when you need a loan

RC said...

Huh? I'm confused.

I just thought that I come visit your blog and say hi.

Hi!

Ok, I wants to say more. Thanks for visiting my blog and posting a post on my blogs post that you just posted to! I had to go fix that post I posted because I made some gramma mistakes in that post which made me look gay, because I'm not! But they are ok.

I was serious with what I posted on my post that you posted to, but I'm happy that my post made you laugh, because everybody needs a good laugh, but not my grandma, because I'm fraid her face might crack, which is not a good thing, because I love her!

I hope you are having a nice day, and thanks for visiting my blog, again.

Icy, I'd love to help you out but it's been a really tough month and I gave a lot to the SPCA and, look, I have to answer my friend Rockchild but don't be a stranger, ok?

Hi, Rockchild, my two mommies, Ana and Angela, made come over even though I wanted to burn ants. I guess I had a pretty good time, though.

Alone - Ask for one from a friend and you soon will be.

Jamie Dawn said...

Alone.... I much prefer being not alone.

Being in emotional pain and alone.... now that's the worst!

Alone, adj. A momentary state in which conversation improves, concentration accelerates, hopes soar, and mankind becomes tolerable.

PEOPLE AMOUNG US
ALL ALONE; ALL AROUND
A SEA OF FACES,
SOME FAMILIAR,SOME STRANGE,
SOME FRIENDS, SOME FOES,
FOES BECOMING FRIENDS
FRIENDS BECOMING FOES.
HERE WE ARE....ALIVE
ALIKE.....ALONE

Unhappily married.

Doug said...

Prying, I guess I'd missed the financial gag. Good one.

Jamie Dawn, may you never be.

By golly, Gabriel, that's what I wish I'd written. Hats off. Deep bow.

Poetry from brother Sreekesh, the largest shareholder in Waking Ambrose. Thanks, boss.

Gnat, I prefer my solitude organically grown.

Indeterminacy said...

I'm the hermit type. I'd love to move into a cave all by myself, if I could bring a girl with me.

Doug said...

Inde, that doesn't sound like hermit to me. It sounds like a poet wishing for a quieter muse.

Sar said...

If you're 7 years older than Strider, then I'm only 2 years younger than you. Does that leave me old by association?

Doug said...

More like ancient.

Sar said...

Well I guess I'll be joining you at Bingo.

Doug said...

Welcome, but I should warn you I cheat.

Sar said...

You'd have to because my bingo skills are lightening fast even for my old age.

B4...and after!

Doug said...

I remember back before there was "B"

Sar said...

What, when it was INGO?
