Separation Anxiety

Now different,
familiar is alien,
normality is masked
as distance we keep.

In my own world,
but part of yours,
watching, reading,
I listen too much.

My taken was granted,
missing humanity,
links that were,
lie separated .

Your words describe it perfectly! Being forced to be apart and asocial is so far from joyous or comfortable. In moments like these is when you fully realize how much our social natures play an important role in our well-being. Very well-written, it evokes the situation very clearly, thanks.

Lady Courtaire
feeling this deeply today, and every day in these strange destabilizing times. beautifully expressed.
