"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Solitude

study-of-a-girls-head-john-william-waterhouse

solitude is
when nobody shares your thoughts
no voice calls your name when you enter your house,
no eye looks for you when it’s bed time,
nobody tells you good morning.

solitude is when
even if there’s someone in your life
they don’t care about your feelings
so consumed by their ambitions and wishes
that they fail to see you, leaving you always on the side.

solitude is
a way of living or an accident of life,
a handicap or a blessing
a calling or a choice
for each one of us has a different story.

solitude is not
to be alone physically
to never see people
to never talk or never have friends,
solitude is to feel that you are the only one of your kind.
