Pronunciation: doen-lee-mee-alone

Sentence: She watched him walk slowly down the sidewalk as they parted ways for the night. They both hated this part. Saying good-night was almost the equivalent to good-bye for them. He turned for one last glance and noticed she had that donleamealone look on her face. His eyes filled with tears. He hated that look & it filled his heart with such an unfathomable pain to see. He quickly turned back around and rounded the corner and got in his car. Once inside, he let out a huge sigh and wiped his eyes. "One day", he thought as the engine roared to life, "I won't ever have to see that look again."

Etymology: Don't (contraction of do not) + Leave (to depart from) + Me (the objective case of I, used as a direct or indirect object) + Alone (separate, apart, or isolated from others)
