Loneliness came to my house yesterday
He stood on my doorstep and stared at me
I invited him in because I couldn’t turn him away
I said I’d give him tea and cake.
He said no, I cannot sit and eat with you
That’s what company does, I am loneliness.
I told him that we could be lonely together,
And he came in.
He sat in my chair, but I didn’t mind
I sat in company’s usual seat.
There weren’t any more seats though
So if company came,
I’d have to turn her away.
Now i take him everywhere
I am with loneliness on the bus
I am with loneliness at parties,
I went to visit company,
But she saw loneliness by my side and sent me away.
Company doesn’t agree with loneliness,
So she doesn’t come anymore
I don’t mind though,
because loneliness is good enough company for me.
