Loneliness and Solitude

Updated on April 20, 2011



The sky can be gray 
Or blue but always gray 
I have no place 
The sunshine
Cannot warm the chill 
Of saying 
“If only “
When I am lonely 


Every disinterested face 
Accuses me of difference 
Human alien race 
Where always wrong 
I don’t belong 
When I am lonely 


That the sky is 
Continuous change
An object lesson 
The sunshine 
Nurturing rays 
I say 
“Thank you” 
In my solitude 


I am eager to see 
The physical existence 
All my faces 
Reflecting facets of me 
Happy just to be 
In my solitude


In loneliness 
I am alone 
In solitude 
I always have 
My own 
Company

      It might seem as if I did not have much of a choice about it, but I like my solitude, too :)

      Thank you, Aamna :)

      Ahhh, and that is the difference. At times, I've felt very alone surrounded by people.

      Hi, Eiddwen! Thank you!

      I think that one of the loneliest places to be is surrounded by people with whom you feel nothing in common. I find it helpful to view others as mirrors of myself. This makes me put on a pretty face :D
