Staying alone...

by rekhanshiraghava
To stay alone is;
Sitting in a garden full of ripe mangoes,
Eating them slowly.

To stay alone is;
Sleep till the noon,
Slowly welcomed by the moon,
Open the window and look at his company.

To stay alone is;
Letting the dishes pile up in the sink,
And without being bothered,
Stand on the window, elbow on the wall, in crazy wind.

To stay alone is;
Mind untouched or crammed,
To flow like a water, meet the obstacles natural way,
To carry them, through your heart for mutual conclusion.

To stay alone is;
Assume days to flow Like rhythm of water,
Like river that meets other river,
Or belongs to a water fall,
Or Simply carries on in its particular way,
For journey called life-
Let others and the author know if you liked it

Liked it alot?

August 1, 2015 - 15:01 It is a very well woven poem..but when I went through it ,I felt as though you enjoy your loneliness rather than be afraid..but the poem is a beauty ,expressing the pains and pleasures of loneliness

August 1, 2015 - 15:19 I experienced living alone for 2+ years. No family members, no girlfriend, and just the occasional friends coming over. This is how it really feels. But in a very verbose manner. Keep it up!

August 4, 2015 - 15:22 I agree; solace-in yourself-and around is the best feel!!...Like rivers meeting each other to flow together or opposite!Like the emotions captured; I can picture the flow out from you.

August 4, 2015 - 15:58 To stay alone and have some 'me' time can be rejuvenating, but loneliness can kill u quick! Good poem with touchy emotions. God luck!

rekhanshiraghava

August 4, 2015 - 16:23 Agreed... but all we need in life... is self belief.... and i think even solace in yourself can do that.... Thank u so much for reading it... and apreciating....

November 21, 2016 - 18:43 Rekha ..i loved your poem very much..yeah . For a change it is good to stay alone .but the romance and the newness wears away when you realize that you have no hands waiting to hold you or no lips waiting to speak to you..when you look out in to the world ..all that you see would be togetherness..leaves clustered to jiggle ..birds pecking.. domestic animals fighting or running around ..wherever you look you see doubles..and you are alone..sob sob .. Your poem is good but the idea is a bit heavy for me to contain..
