The Lonely Bones

Lonely when
she cancels plans
or forgets we were scheduled to meet…

Lonely when
he doesn’t ask how I am
or rattles on about nothing…

Lonely when
they just don’t answer
or barely listen as I speak…

Lonely only when
the expectation for fulfillment
comes from a well
clogged with human bones…
