A Holy Rabid Loneliness

We mightn’t have embarked
upon that strange excursion
into Soul our friendship is
had we not separately undergone

the stirrings of a holy rabid
loneliness: a darkness far
exceeding night – the building
toward a crippling secret fright

felt well before we knew
there could be solace for it
in the meeting of two pairs
of eyes. But here we are,

far past surmise, my friend:  
despite our knowing, though
we dare not wonder to each
other when, the thing will end.
