a room full of people
each one by himself
paying no mind
    to the others

none wants a crowd
yet none wants seclusion
thus we each sit alone
     together

You captured it all in so little words. Eventhough I really dislike a room full of "hollowness", it's also where the occasional "treasure" is found.   Great job !

Munda-
  Thank you for your kind words.  You
  are very right - the 'hollowness' is
  what you make of it.  Glad you enjoyed
  this one.

dg-
  Yes, this one does bring back some memories -
  some very good ones I might add.     It's
  always nice when friends are comfortable
  with each other even in silence.

VLRaynes~
Oh, I like this.
Reminds me of one of my favorite sayings -

'All alone, together - just the two of us.'

Marge-
  Glad you like it.  
  This one was inspired
  by a very memorable
  evening among friends.
  Thanks for your response.
