How Great is the Power of Loneliness?

Mightier than the sword and the pen.

At the root from which temptation stems.

My fingers begin to slip,

Into the Devil’s hand who extends.

 

Loneliness is an unequivocal nightmare.

A constant reminder.

Alone. By yourself. On your own.

You have no help.

 

You think of the old friend, you see their back.

Think about the friend you wish you had,

Who makes you think back,

To the old friend who turned their back.

 

All of the others who you embrace,

To feel comfortable, to feed your ego,

to protect your insecurities,

to pretend, to hide your true face.

 

Your darkness is lit by that candle.

It covers the greatest fear in your life.

Afraid of dreams becoming memories,

And memories becoming ghosts.

 

A never-ending nightmare,

With no awakening in the future,

No idea where this nightmare will go,

And a desperate soul reaching to the depths of hell for help.

 

Loneliness has no boundaries,

Regardless of the impermeability.

Eventually slipping into slumber,

Shaking with fear – the nightmare is there.

 

“Yet, we do know,

Where we all should go,

After their loneliness

Has got to them.”

 

To the alpha, the omega.

The creator, the savior.

He opens eyes during nightmares,

Grabs your hand, and removes the one extended.

Dome Pondering Movie Review: Hustle (2022)

What is it about? A long-time scout, Stanley Sugarman, grinds out the life of an NBA scout and the politics of the NBA by taking a chance on a prospect he believes in to change both of their lives.  Who is in it? Adam Sandler - Stanley Sugarman Juancho Hernangomez - Bo Cruz Queen Latifah - Teresa Sugarman Favorite Scene:   Kermit and Bo line up at center court and Kermit begins the trash talk to get inside of Bo's head, eventually taking him off his game.  Favorite Quote:   "I'll say one last inspirational thing to you: they can't kill you if you're already dead." Review:  Hustle sat on "My List" on my Netflix account for quite a long time. Parked on the couch in the middle of the night with a newborn, and jonesing for some hoops, I dove in on what I read (and heard from others) was a "really good film". I'll give away the suspense, I thought Hustle was decent. It felt too cliche and had little depth, but still, a really good film.  The
