“Only The Lonely… Know The Way I Feel Tonight… Only The Lonely… Know This Feeling Ain’t Right…” — ROY ORBISON (“Only The Lonely”)

…There Goes My Baby…

…There Goes My Heart…

…They’re Gone Forever…

…So Far Apart…

…But Only The Lonely…

…Know Why-y-y…

…I Cry…

…Only The Lonely. …

…Only The Lonely…

…Know The Heartaches I’ve Been Through…

…Only The Lonely…

…Know I Cry…

…And Cry…

…For You…

…Maybe Tomorrow…

…A New Romance…

…No More Sorrow…

…But That’s The Chance…

…You’ve Gotta Take…

…If Your Lonely Heart Breaks…

…Only The Lonely.

***** ***** *****

Tonight Has Simply Been A Downer Of An Evening.

I Know, I Know…

…It’s Not THAT Late Yet, And There’s Still Time To Do SOMETHING.

Only, There’s Not.

I’m Alone.

When Alone, I Find My Upper-Moments At Home.

I Can’t Stand Going Out-N-About All Alone.

Being BOTH…

BI-POLAR

…And…

A PARANOID-SCHIZOPHRENIC

…Means Being Out-N-About All Alone Can Only Ever Become A Hellish Endeavor.

I Can Go For A Walk, Sure.

Just Have To Bring My Music…

…So It Can Totally Drowned-Out The World That Surrounds Me.

Otherwise, I’m Terrified.

I Worry That Someone Will Come-Up To Me…

…Start Some Shit…

…And Then I’ll Snap…

…And I’ll Shut-Their-Shit-Up RIGHT QUICK.

I’m A Rather Tender Guy, In Appearance Anyway.

Very Unassuming.

So Most People Just Smile And Leave Me Be.

The Problem Is…

…It Makes For A Very Lonely Living Experience.

All The Friends I Leaned On For So Many Years Are All Gone.

They’ve Either Moved Far, Far Away.

Or, They’re Building Families Of Their Own.

Any Way It Goes…

…I’m Left Alone.

With The Mind I Have…

…The Impulses That Constantly Drive Me…

…Being Alone Is THE LAST THING I Sincerely EVER Need To Be.

Yet…

…Here I Sit.

I’m Alone.

And I’m Talking To Y’all.

I’d Cry About It…

…If I Knew How.

My External Emotions Are Nearly NON-Existent.

With Me…

…It’s All On The Inside.

Inside, I’ve Been Crying NON-Stop…

…For Over A Decade.

    • I Very Much Agree, Sir.
      His Voice Was Pure.
      His Sound Was SO SO SO Unique.
      And He Wrote Some Of The Most Beautiful Songs In Music History.
      The World Lost A TRUE Master-Of-His-Craft When Roy Died Suddenly In 1988 😦

    • I Don’t Own A Bike.
      And When I Need A Clear Head, I Go For My Walks.
      BUT…
      …Back In January…
      …I Majorly Pinched A Nerve In My Left Leg…
      …So My Long Walks Have Been Cut Down Since.
      Hard To Go Walk When You Can’t Feel Half Of Your Leg.
      But I Continue Going, Trying To Rebuild Its Strength.
      I’ve Met With Limited Success, BUT Limited Success Is STILL Progress.
      So I Keep Going.
      Just Like The Rest Of My Life.
      Half The Feeling Is Gone…
      …But I Continue Rollin’ Along With It.

  1. Brad, I’ve been there, too, my man. All I can tell you is that sometimes good things come out of nowhere and bite you in the ass as well, and often when you least expect it. Your line-drives ain’t fallin’, man, but that don’t mean your not scalding the ball. Hang in there, man, the hits will come.
