I didn't feel lonely around you. Even when nothing was being said, I felt understood and the silence was not empty, to the contrary...no, the silence was full and beautiful, like a ripe moon.

Much of what I feel or perceive or think of is expressed visually in my mind. I see clearly, in my mind, things that do not actually have a physically visual form. It can be difficult to express these things verbally. Not being able to communicate in a way such that other people will really grasp it, seeing them pretend to understand, or feeling mute and voiceless, makes me feel unspeakably lonely. I feel lonelier in this sort of situation than if I were away from people entirely, alone in the woods or on a trail.
