Loneliness: A Solitary Confinement of the Soul


A crowd surrounds you, yet you walk alone! Alienated from the world outside, you live in the cocoon of your solitude, but you yearn for a heart that sings with you. It is time you paid heed to Eagles Desparado, "It may be raining, but there's a rainbow above you. You better let somebody love you, before it's too late."

Life without a friend and a loved one can be crushingly lonely. Don't let loneliness creep into your life. Open the gates of your heart and allow others to reach out to you. Soon a special someone may walk into your life and get rid of your loneliness.
