How sweet the dulcet sound of solitude;
mellifluous in name and there to quell
the whirlwind of commotion which surrounds
our lives, and has us caught up in its spell.

And yet when isolation is not sought
but rather caused by loneliness or grief,
such emptiness in life can overwhelm;
and solitude will tender no relief.

Being alone is a double - edged sword as you tell well in this ode. Peace & Love Matthew Anish

Ugh! So true. Solitude by choice can be bliss, when forced upon one a curse. Reminds me a bit of my bless the lonely poem. I hope you're not alone
