August 6, 2013 Prompt–Write about the Sound, the Color and the Smell of Loneliness

There is nothing as lonely as silence – it’s like a thick white mist –

in solitary confinement or separation from God.

No sight, no sound, not even the tick of a clock and nothing to touch.

Your cry goes unheard as you swim through the clouds,

hoping to connect with something real.
