For this week’s Thursday Inspiration prompt from Paula Light, the theme is “lonely.”
Many people associate the word “lonely” as being synonymous with the word “alone.” But I believe these words have very different meanings. Being alone is being by one’s self. Being lonely is feeling abandoned or sad due to isolation. So “alone” refers to a state of solitude, whereas “lonely” refers to an emotion.
With that out of the way, I present you with the classic “lonely” song by the late, great Roy Orbison.
