you are simply lonely -
and there is a tremendous difference
between loneliness and aloneness.

you are missing the other.
Loneliness is a negative state.

better if the other were there -
your friend, your wife, your mother,
your beloved, your husband.

were there, but the other is not.
Loneliness is absence of the other.

Aloneness is very positive.
It is a presence, overflowing presence.
You are so full of presence
that you can fill the whole universe
with your presence and there is no need for anybody.
