Weekend Writing Prompt — Solitudinarian

How many times and in how many ways can a man have his heart broken?

Only the lonely can understand how I am feeling. It’s as if I’ve checked into Heartbreak Hotel.

I now refer to myself as “Mr. Lonely,” and I just don’t care anymore. I will no longer allow myself to cry those lonely teardrops. I will stop shedding the tears of a clown.

From this day forth I resolve that I am a rock, I am an island, and I’ll be what I am, a solitary man.

(Exactly 90 words)

Written for Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt, where the word is “solitudinarian.”

How many song titles about being alone or lonely can you pick out in this post?

    I kind of doubt that I will ever have an occasion to use the word solitudinarian, but you did a great job with it.

      I was debating whether or not to pass, today, but then I decided to go for it.

    Very clever. Although will he learn that ‘no man is an island’ after all?

    I have a feeling I probably missed one or two, but are there nine references? Great job!
