Alone is Beautiful

Updated on December 1, 2012

Alone is Beautiful


The sky tonight seems more beautiful than it was yesterday. Lying here alone I could see the brightest starlight and the moon shine its beauty on me. Yesterday you tried to convince me that the stars weren't there and the moon was black; when you should have made me see a million little shining stars align, when you should have made me see the moon’s beauty light upon the seven skies. That was the moment I knew; alone is beautiful.

Staring at the mirror tonight I looked prettier than I did yesterday. I could see my reflection spell innocence, happiness, and faith. Yesterday you made me see guilt, misery, and hopelessness; when you should have made me see beauty in every ugly moment; when you should have made me feel home anywhere I looked. That was the moment I knew; alone is beautiful.

Standing on my feet tonight I feel stronger than I was yesterday. I could feel the earth beneath me guide me and I could finally reach the low hanging clouds. Yesterday you made me feel paralyzed by your “cruel honesty”; when you should have built me a staircase to the skies. When you should have been the sailor to the boat of my dreams. That was the moment I knew; alone is beautiful.

Tonight I’m playing a song more hopeful than what I listened to yesterday. The sweet melody calmed my delicate heart and hushed the storm inside me. Yesterday you played a song that kept me running, hiding and searching for a safe haven to hide my fears; when you should have played a song that I would dance to joyfully. When you should have played a magical melody that made every dream come true. That was the moment I knew; alone is beautiful.

Peace seemed so far yet tonight the darkness I've known and seen subsides. Tonight I’m giving myself a moment to breathe, relax and feel the breeze. Tonight I’m kicking the dust and moving on. Tonight life feels so short when it felt so long…this is the moment I knew; alone is beautiful.

      At times we need time to spend alone, to have a peace of mind. This is beautiful.
