Solace In Solitude


I sat down on the beach sand gazing at

The boundless horizon

Where my past and present dissolved into

Each other as the sky and the ocean

The door to one of the closets of my memory

Opened and I tried to reason if I was destined to

Travel through life with despair and sorrow

Permanently at my side

My happiness had been like a fragile beautiful bird

If I held to it tightly, I broke its wings and crushed

It to death; and if I held on it too lightly it’ll flew away

As I was thinking how my past kidnapped me

The ocean air, the sound of the sea and wonderfully

Hypnotic and meditative sight of the waves coming

In and going out soothed and calmed me

I found solace and comfort in my solitude

Nature proved to be my companion, soothing

My bruises, stroking me with her warm

Breezes and filling me with a sense of security.
