I wrote this as I sat day after day awaiting my direction while recovering. I had a two day coma caused from an unknown seizure disorder. Upon returning, it took me 2+ years to regain reading, writing and mathmatics to a pre-condition level.

I'm alone, alone to me

not in the way the masses see

but rather like a bird in a tree

I fly long and far, here and there

but stay stationary in my motion

much like a tiny fish in the ocean

The phone sometimes rings

The mail arrives from near and far

and some come in their cars

but they still don't understand

I feel alone in the lonely confinement of my mind

I read, I write, I paint, I type

but still remain silently afloat

in my solitary boat

I wish I could explain

how it is to fly

all alone in a plane

It's like planting a hundred daisies

and watching them in the summer sun

only to note the arrival of one

Sometimes I dream

a quiet dream

that this sleep will take

and allow me

never to awake

How sad to be confined to the mind as thoughts take you everywhere, yet you remain alone, a solitary figure in an enormous field of opportunity....

Be always safe,

I have a daughter with a degree of agoriphobia. It's treatable, but difficult to manage. Well done.
