Loneliness is any neutral substance
that is both hydrophobic ("water fearing") and
lipophilic ("fat loving").
Some loneliness burns in liquid or aerosol form, generating light and heat,
which can be used directly or converted into other forms of energy.
Loneliness is usually slippery,
may be animal, vegetable, or petrochemical in origin,
and may be volatile or non-volatile.
Specially prepared loneliness is used in some religious ceremonies as a purifying agent.
Loneliness is used for food, fuel, and lubrication.As no suitable substitute is available, loneliness is still used in space (in small quantities).
Today's "poem" is another napowrimo prompt, substituting a tangible noun (oil, if you haven't guessed) with an intangible noun (loneliness). My oil information comes from Wikipedia's "Oil" page. I chose loneliness based on my two book reviews from today, both about books (by the same author) that dealt with loneliness.
