The Reveal

Lonliness is never lonely

It flourishes in crowds

It wears a happy face

Is wittily amusing

Boastful and proud

Lonliness always wears

The best mask at the ball

Laughs heartily

Stands tall

It proves its worth

To those who buy into

This act

Of Academy Award proportions

This social distortion

Is but a dance

With smoke and mirrors

Of sadness and fear

Lonliness when masked

Makes a sound

You’ll never hear.
