loner, often only pleasing alone
seeing more alone
my new lover would please me
news is, my loneliness is more mine than hers
rearrange me, please

  1. Nick, this poem beautifully conveys the anguish of loneliness … a loneliness so profound that it isn’t overcome even by a new lover who seeks to please you. I’m not sure if “rearrangement” will help. What seems to help most is to get into action, doing something that engages you and is appreciated by others. Because when you take action that shows your love and concern for others, the love usually comes back with interest, and love is the best medicine for loneliness.
