The chance to just ‘be’
with my thoughts
with my hopes
with my dreams
yes, even my fears
is a need, a must, an ‘I can’t do without’.
Company drains me, if it’s not what fits
as a long-lost jigsaw piece completing the picture of me.
I am a square peg in the round hole of life
unless (and until) I can claim my solitude
until I can meditate on my island
until I can breathe in
until I can breathe out
and feel whole again.
Over on A Dash of Sunny, we are invited to express ourselves on solitude. Do we need it? Do we hate our own company? How do we feel?
I don’t think I beat about the bush on this – how about you?
