"Language has created the word loneliness to express the pain of being alone, and the word solitude to express the glory of being alone." - Paul Johannes Tillich (1886-1965) American Theologian, Philosopher


No

Only
When I refused to be
Lonely
Could I begin to grow

Because
There was nobody there
There was
Nobody anywhere

Before
I had refused to see:
No more

Now I know there is no
Other who would ever
Stay one who would never
Disappoint nor hurt me

No: all would desert me

Only
Now I refuse to be
Lonely

No visitors no phone
No lies just what is true
One needs to be alone
For that which I must do

Fashioned in darkness from smoke into flame
When you see these ashes: ...remember ...my ...name

Stevie:

Beautiful, haunting poetry. I've read thru a number of your pieces of work & am humbled & impressed.

Blessings to you in your deep, amazing mind.

I think you and me think on the same wavelength my friend. Life is deeper than the surface, nothing is easy, and you might have to come up with new strategies to solve everyday problems. Yet another to add to the library.

By the way, I'd like to second the motion to ditch the pick, it really doesn't fit with the poems message and is liable to make too many people decide to not read the poem. Other than that, amazing, thought provoking write, keep it up,

I've often wondered how hermits made it in the mountains. They must've had this philosophy...

Intense write Steve, the quote really spurs the poets mind into the body of this one. I do have one suggestion though, ditch the graphic, this poem is too good to be honest the picture makes it seem frivolous which it is obviously not meant to be. Just a suggestion buddy.'

Sometimes we have to stop looking in order to find what we seek! Makes sense to me. Beautiful words you say! I wish you Peace~

After all of the blogs, etc that have been criticizing simple reviews, I'm a bit scared to say this, but...Wow!
