The Art Of Loneliness


Loneliness is my trigger.

That craving for more,
to be by your side.

Because if I’m not,
then who is?

Jealousy – creation of stories over & over…
The fear of abandonment.

From connection,
From creating,
From movement,
From you.

Silence in solitude is the greatest gift,
and yet there are layers upon layers of sadness
left to be burned.

The cold and darkness has arrived,
my greatest obstacle delivered,
a hurdle to gracefully overcome.

How, and why and where and with who?

Anxieties to soften with too much space and time.
Keep flowing,
keep breathing.

Following faith and hope
in a direction of peace through this chaos of healing.
