When you’re on your ‘jack jones’

Lonely is a lonely place that suits a very lonely face where in a crowd there is a place to fit in with the human race,
but what if lonely is the new bona fide?
and this question arises when I look inside me.

thinking off and blinkers on
is the only way
but it gets in the way of
quality conversation.

Take me as you find me
wrecked upon the beach.

I could teach the young a thing or two of lonely, what it does to you, the way it eats away at the words you want but cannot say
and here
I make no bones
if you’re lonely
you’re on your
‘jack jones’
