Have you ever felt this way?
When the night is so quiet
When the rest of the world seems
To be a delusion, illusion

You lie awake, an open nerve
Twitching towards
something, anything
that eases the longing
of touching, of connecting

Your heart aching
Your stomach clenching
Your soul knowing
A day has passed
Encased in invisible glass

Oh yes, the feeling comes even at times during the day. One can feel lonely even in crowds. Nice write.

I think I can relate to that. Great stuff. The imagery was dead-on.
