Alone but not lonely

Being alone is different from loneliness 

I am never lonely, because I’m always with myself 

But being alone is a state that I cherish sometimes 

At times, company is good, and family or friends welcomed 

But then too much noise, too much hustle-bustle 

Makes me crave a bit of solitude and a bit of quietude 

Where I can hear myself think

Where my heart, my soul talks to my Creator

If I don’t get my much-desired me-time, I make it for myself 

By sitting alone in the quiet of the night and thinking, deep thoughts!


I am sharing a poem I wrote a year ago for RXC

In response to dVerse, open link night, hosted by Björn

  1. I’m an ambivert. Sometimes I enjoy spending my time all lone but once it becomes too much of me I’ll surely feel lonely so I get to call my friends over or go to them to spend away the lonely times.

  2. Relate to this SO much, Sadje! 💞💞💞 I need my alone time to refresh and recharge so I can ‘people’ again. But the pang of loneliness can hurt the worst in a crowd of people.
