feeling slightly less sad and alone due to reading poems about being sad and alone but ending up feeling more sad and alone because of the assumed universality of relating to those poems and the realization that the reading of such poems does not change the situation: we are sad and alone
in a world full of people who are sad and alone in a time when are there is only sadness and loneliness and distraction from sadness and loneliness but no cure. i wrote a poem with no almost no line breaks because thoughts run into each other they blend. i wrote a poem about sadness and loneliness as a review to an emotion that was a little e-book about sadness and loneliness because there was nothing else to do but watch from sidelines.
emotions felt by an individual words typed by an individual words read by an individual who felt emotions could relate; if you relate be reminded that relation is a substitute for change and a fixation is not a fix and become more sad and lonely because relating does not change the situation: we are sad and alone sidestepping two steps too removed.
