It almost makes sense for two lonely people to be together

They will take walks in the park,
sometimes alone — because, they prefer it that way.

They will converse,
but for few minutes only.
They don’t want to run out of things to appreciate each other.

They will be lonely,
but at least they will be together.
They won’t be proclaiming anything,
except their loneliness and their way of managing it.

A lonely person is — depressing.
Two lonely persons — together
are probably less depressing,
than two sad movies.

Two lonely persons — together
will be lovely.
They will occasionally hold hands and then won’t.
They will be intimate in their own ways.
They will be equally sad and happy in their own ways.
They will make and break things.

They will die soon.
Like everybody else.
But at least they will be together.
It almost makes sense
for them to be — together.
