to be alone

To Be Alone Solitude brings peace but being alone brings restiveness, a longing for a voice even if it is a speak saying obvious utterances. Silence doesn’t make a man whole he needs to hear voices, to make sure we are not alone in a world full of noises, that means nothing for the basic needs of the daily. Simple things what’s for dinner tomorrow and if we do not listen carefully we lose love behind the words of domestic murmour as it often get lost in the world of thunder; if we lose the ability to listen out for the ordinary we lose the big picture, our loneliness becomes agonizing a constant hum that only brings despair and unhappiness.

Jan - I am printing this. While thinking of a comment on 'to be alone' about the impact it has made on me, I was instantly inspired to write. Ordinary sounds try to recompense but they have no soul. Check out the poem. love and hugs, Kathy P.s. you can google your 'should I die' poem along with your name if you truly have forgotten it. It is there.
