That Lonely Feeling

The one that hits you in the gut 
while sitting in a crowd and you 
realize that you are

too old to be here
too young to care
too old fashion to "get it"
too liberal to justify yourself.

The one that rips a hole in your heart
and reminds you
that once again

too pretty to be approached
too aged to be noticed
too stubborn to turn gray
too independent to beg.

That loneliness which
seeps out of 
every pore of your being

too strong to deny
too loud to silence
too alive to bury
too needy to stop.

That loneliness who
at times takes its 
stand in your emotions

too demanding to ignore
too fierce to escape
too wise to be silenced
too powerful to subdue.
