[It’s lonely in here] by Harris Schiff

it’s lonely in here
loneliness is hard
it’s frightening to think one
might always be alone. One
be alone forever

there are the window sounds
wall sounds
how can we be close together
and not in one another’s arms?

the lucky people who have found
lovers grow spoiled & demanding.

From: Schiff, Harris, “[It’s lonely in here]” in Ploughshares, Vol. 1., No. 1 (1971), p. 25.

Date: 1971
