They sit all together in the dark in the warm.
He sits apart, othered, left out.
He feels it keenly, like the loss of a limb.
Wanting, more than anything, to be there among them.

They form a tight circle, all gathered into one.
She's circumnavigated the globe, but can't breach this core.
They watch as she walks by, longing in her eyes.
Hurting as the in crowd leaves her out.

They sit together in the dark and the warm.
Sharing soft acknowledgments of sharpened barbs.
Solitude is everybody's enemy.
What they've wished for they've found in no longer being alone.

Title and fic inspired by the song Solitude Standing by Suzanne Vega from the album of the same name, which contains the singles Luka and Tom's Diner.

I turn to the crowd as they're watching
They're sitting all together in the dark in the warm
I wanted to be in there among them
I see how their eyes are gathered into one

I confess there's so much I could say about the way this makes me feel it makes me not want to even start. So I say nothing. I remain outside.
