    My solitude comforts
    like a blanket comforting
    me every cold night
    when I freeze like anything,
    The spotify playlist turned on,
    Soothes me, that none could
    ever do to me.

    Every dusk breaks, the
    sky all of a sudden turns black
    leaving me in chaos,
    But at times, I close my eyes,
    And everything appears to be
    monochrome in front of my eyes.
    How will get rid of this pretty tragedy?
    "Pretty"? I'll better stay this than
    being exposed to fakeness.

    Flowers bloom, butterfly flutters
    Scorching sun's heat, Sunglasses in eyes
    Water droplets fall, Raincoats worn
    The flowers carry frost, Kids make Snowman
    Seasons change and People also do.

    In my mother's womb, my solitude
    is born with me, and I know until my
    Last breath it would be with me
    unlike those people who fake
    and end up giving you pain & hurt.

    Whenever I walk with solitude
    Everything around me seems to be unique
    The air caresses my hair as it sways
    and I could feel the bliss of holding my solitude

    Humans will come and go
    But you'll stay constant among them
    You are like that arm for me,
    Without which I look incomplete.
    In me, many a hue is coloured by you.

    When harships torments me
    it chases away to my solitude
    and you seek me solace like
    laying in my mother's lap.

    Every night as I sleep,
    I can meet you in my dreams,
    And as every dawn wakes me up,
    You are still with me.

    -Poojaa

    • This is inspired from "En Iniya Thanimaiye" (tamil song ) one of my fav song in the recent times.
    The song is about an intelligent manwho loves to be alone, and spends time all by himself, researching about something.

    • At times, I have used "YOU" at the last stanzas which refers to solitude itself.

    • I wanted to submit this for QsPoWriMo9, but the deadline got over, So I couldn't, But still I wanted to do this! Quote Stitchers ��

    • Now about the BG, it is 3 different frames from the movie, which I tried sketching a few days ago, even if it looks clumsy, I wanted to post this. :)
    Thank you for reading through!

    Aster

    Lush green hills, a cabin at bottom
    Of logs of pine, a landscape-exotic!
    There lived a lad, his torso tattooed
    Vivid portrayal of his bitter bygone days
    For he owned a pup, his firmest friend
    Its satin soft fur brown as if pollen-dusted
    Also a coppery canoe so old, refurbished.

    In a month of lavenders, a weather so clement
    A pale glimmer of specks of stars spicy and still
    Sipping on a ruby red wine he roved forth to horizon blue
    Whistling in glee for his furry mate, bon voyage!
    Frenzy on that barbera wine, on and on he paddled.

    Amongst the withered weeds stretched ashore
    His glimpse locked in the hues of a last lone aster
    Stuck in its beauty, elegance and scent
    The very next moment-pause-a twist of fate;
    Drowns the trio toward a disarray of the lake bed
    To the abyss of a vortex, their final seconds
    Fighting for life, yet helpless and fruitless.

    Woke to life by a wavelet spray, bathed in reality
    Lone survivor he stood dismayed, down hearted
    Echoes of skylark whir a lament, of grief
    Sadder than any words, fitfully orphic
    Yet feeble, less louder than his own swirl of thoughts.

    Purple shattered, smooth-laid on his sobbing cheeks
    Condolent petals of the very same aster
    Dispatched by midnight mute summer winds.
    Scattered on the lake surface, undeciphered ellipses
    of eulogy for his dearly departed duo
    Every moment embraced in a dreary dull solitude.

    Passing By
    .


    Ocean waves for a calming mind
    Trap pretend and a breezy tide
    Big bright moon on my balcony rails
    Lilac fragrances from a distant place
    Gliding touch and a tear drop kiss
    Who are you and who am I?

    Just travellers passing by...

    Beyond the facade

    The loneliness,
    Once caused havoc inside her head.
    Questioning her own worth
    She looked for a shoulder to comfort.
    But little did she know what sham companies were;
    Tied by loose strings
    With no promise of eternity.
    Took some time
    But slowly she delved beyond the facade
    That taught her how to enjoy ones own space.
    And slowly it gets addictive;
    Making her fall madly for it.
    Indeed a peace it is,
    Which companies often fails to bring.

    WHY

    "Why", like thousand dark circles
    At times fading, often gripping
    Keeps me up at night.

    My fingers at work, they put up a fight,
    None saw me like you did, I fear they might.

    Do I write to forget,
    or forget to write.

    किस बात का है अफसोस तुझे,
    जो बीत गया अब छोड़ उसे,
    वो वापस ना फिर आएगा,

    तू सीख सके तो सीख जरा,
    ये वक्त का है मोल बड़ा,
    तू समझ जब ये जाएगा,
    फिर ये गलती ना दोहराए गा,
    पछताने में, शोक मनाने में,
    तू अपना वक्त ना गवाएगा,
    किस बात का है अफसोस तुझे,
    जो बीत गया अब छोड़ उसे।

    tu seekh sake toh seekh zara,
    yeh waqt ka hai mol bada,
    tu samajh jab yeh jaega,
    phir yeh galti na dhorahega,
    pachtane mein, shok manane mein,
    tu apna waqt na gavaaega,
    kis baat ka hai afsos tujhe,
    jo beet gaya ab chhod usse.

    Loneliness

    It must a powerful spell
    Where all solitude yell
    There are close faces
    Yet none ease any pain
    Neither you know the reasons
    Nor it change with season
    The sadness take all over
    And Desperately you try new faces
    Sometime it just work fine
    You open heart beyond line
    Deep conversation you all brag about
    In time it too fade away
    And You reach the same state
    Searching again the counter spell
    You come up with a different way
    The loneliness loop seldom breaks

    My Cup of Tea

     
    Alas! My Solitude,
    You entangled within my soul,
    Like a dear companion,
    And aided this innocent-being;
    To introspect the qualities within,
    To perceive “My worth” among the zillion beings,
    To engulf with “Self-love”,
    To understand the hidden dark side of “My gloominess”,
    To provide cakelicious flavours of vibrant “Self-motivated thoughts”,
    To provoke the “Self confidence dosage” to my palpitating heart,
    You always stood as “My cup of tea”,
    Amidst my wide likeness
    In the Universe.
    What else could I ask more for?
    When I’m confined with,
    Solitary Blissness!

    Solitude

    Sitting in solitude near the window seeing the rain drops grazing down the pane,
    There came a flashback in my mind of all the memories and pain .
    I found myself shattered just as the vase which fell down ,
    For the world was a circus and I just a clown.
    Gradually I could sense my prime focus changing,
    And started living the way this world would be accepting.
    Strings of morality and world's etiquette had bound me tight,
    From being a puppet to myself was a great fight .
    Today I sit at the same window washing off the memories with a sigh,
    But now here I stand facing the world with my head held high....

    Sun sprawled over the tree lined meadow
    Verdant and silent
    Tiny shadows broke its monotony
    And my feet trampled quiet stones and dry leaves
    There is not a single soul among the trees
    Just a whirlpool of space
    Devouring confusion, engendering clarity
    Opening the curtain of my being
    Uncovering the layers that envelop the heart
    Clothing me in stark bareness
    The shadows get longer and their laments mingle
    making strange shapes
    And the chaos inside gets lost
    In the labyrinth of solitude.

    Myself

    How long before I find myself
    Hope today doesn't bring me solitude
    Anyways,
    I'll spread my wings
    I'll reach for the stars
    cause in me is the only place I find perfect symbiosis
    Don't be bemused

    Isn't it strange to write a letter to strangers! You don't know name, locality nothing.
    But sometimes it's better to write such letters as someone may seek love, hope, & solicitude in its solitude.

    My #LetterToStranger, To Whoever Finds This.
    Drop a ❤ if you can relate and convey your suggestions without any hesitation. #Stranger
    ----------------------------------------------------------
    TO WHOEVER FINDS THIS :-
    ----------------------------
    Dear Stranger,

    Everyone covets for the gift of serene sunshine & rapturous rain
    But ever wonder, Will these be awarded without any pain !

    Neither dark night passes away peacefully nor breeze sings lullaby always
    Dauntless soldier fights against any adversities coming across its voyage.

    Steer ship of your life towards land of dreams, not to halt through storm & scream
    Leaving the darkest nights of terror, rise & sail until it became a half-remembered dream.

    None can shatter your zesty spirit into pieces
    Ride waves of joy instead being buried under the sea of sadness.

    I'm a stranger to you like a lighthouse to sailor
    Guiding with light of love, hope and solicitude even in solitude, when the sky is paler.

    You're the sailor of your life.
    Your journey & story are important.

    Hope to see you on the other end of Universe.
    Yours
    Mr. Stranger

    missing you

    my chest is still burning, from our last hug
    i keep removing imaginary traces of kisses from my skin
    i see you around
    even if decades have passed already

    and nobody knows even everyone sees
    that i loved you
    i still do

    music and pain
    nonsense and pay
    like children and play
    i survive each day, i wake up each morning
    just not fully

    Nature

    The dark hue, the night possessed
    In the divine music of the cosmos
    The wolves howled and the dogs barked
    Who'd not be scared, with screams so stark
    It caused in me the insomnia
    I ran and ran, only to find I was lost

    I gazed and gazed at the bewitching stars
    Snuggling into each other
    Solitude and melancholy played their roles
    Grief hovering over my heart,
    my enthusiasm it stole
    The tress cluttered up in rows
    The owls staring the eye out of me
    Stuck in ephialtes of unfair life

    I gazed and gazed at that alluring sphere
    The widowed sphere stood so still
    An epitome of aesthetic survival she was
    Faded every night for the red giant
    Overshadowed the dimmer
    Stardust were sprinkled in my spirit
    I was agitated no more

    Mesmerised by the panoramic gift of God- nature
    The ink oozes out of thoughts
    Running like water, wandering like clouds
    The ink rains to bring forth
    What the Inanimate souls can feel
    While the naked eyes can't see.

    Breakups

    A topsy turvy journey it is, some feel free, some fall down.
    The emotional turmoil makes you sick and groan.
    The agony of despair makes you anxious,
    As the need to move on becomes pretentious.
    Broken hearts tend to mend,
    Difficult roads forced to bend.
    Sure does heartbreak plunge you deep,
    But it bestows with a magnificent steep.

    "My struggles being me"

    Is it not lovely how I like the sun kissed mornings
    sipping onto my tea rather than indulging in the morning gossip...
    Is it a crime to enjoy your own company rather than being a social clown.......

    Epiphany

    The most breaking epiphany you can have is the one that tells you,

    How it's not your place to care.

    How it's not your place to expect, to advise, or even to plead!

    Solitude in Duality

    The heart longs for solitude
    With the one that matters beside
    Fears erupt of disconnection
    As the days bereft of him slide

    The mind reasons is that so?
    Would love take a longer stride
    With just you two to give and take
    Would love rise to the cloud nine?

    It explains that solitude is sweet
    And so is the presence of many minds
    Coz then you get a better judgement
    Of the one that you adore for life.

    It explains it's easier to give and take
    When there is none third to divide
    It's critical when love faces more fractions
    And it's upon it to equally supply.

    Then you stand and see your value
    Is it reduced or is it multiplied?
    For solitude is sweet but so is the crowd
    To judge your worth with the person beside.

    Lonely Heart

    Who could understand the pain of this heart
    The yearning of the heart in confusion
    The heart that craves to love and be loved
    The heart that finds comfort in pain and joy
    The heart that seeks to be understood and appreciated
    The heart that is still standing the trial of time

    When will this heart find its home?
    When will this heart find its peace?
    When will it be at ease with total serenity?
    When will this heart stop searching for forever?
    When will true love locate this lonely heart?
    When is that time for the lonely heart?

    Home they say could be found in the heart
    Home is in the heart of the loving heart
    Home filled with bliss and love
    Home that can never be traded for any
    Home a lonely heart finds solitude in
    When will this lonely heart find its home?

    നിന്നെ മറക്കുക എന്നൊന്നുണ്ടാവില്ല,
    ആത്മാവിൽ ബന്ധിക്കപ്പെട്ട നിന്നെ മയ്ക്കുവാൻ
    ഒരു മഴക്കാലത്തിനും ആവില്ലല്ലോ.
    ഓർമയുടെ മുഖത്തെ ഒരു നേർന്ന
    തീരാശീലമാത്രമാണ് ഈ യാത്ര പറച്ചിൽ.
    നിശബ്ദ പ്രണയം എന്നെ കീഴടക്കുമ്പോൾ
    മറക്കുവാൻ ഒരു കോപ്പ കള്ളു ഞാൻ
    മാറ്റിവക്കും നിന്റെ നാമത്തിൽ.
