Lonely (O.S.I.)

Hi all,

This week's O.S.I. prompt is lonely.

Prize of her eyes
Tears thick and blue
Washes away her hope
Soap and water soothes
Lather smooth on skin
Lonely, beating heart
Submerges her within
Bubbles wafting slowly
From her lips

Lonelness to its fulfillment here, W.G. You have me wondering how fast one's heart beats when killing himself.
You soothed that beating heart of hers somewhat with the lather and a few soothing thoughts of self worth.

I like it but of course it also bothers me.
And touches me. Sadness and Loneliness go
hand in hand.

Here is hoping things are going well with and for you. :)
