The best way to know the self is feeling oneself at the moments of reckoning. The feeling of being alone, just with your senses, may lead you to think more consciously. More and more of such moments may sensitize ‘you towards you’, towards others. We become regular with introspection and retrospection. We get ‘the’ gradual connect to the higher self we may name Spirituality or God or just a Humane Conscious. We tend to get a rhythm again in life. We need to learn the art of being lonely in crowd while being part of the crowd. A multitude of loneliness in mosaic of relations! One needs to feel it severally, with conscience, before making it a way of life. One needs to live several such lonely moments. One needs to live severallyalone.

Yet, at times, in Soulful moments!


Don’t know what completes me
Can’t say what repletes me
Never cared to know what depletes me
Can’t let happen what obsoletes me

The classical subcutaneous rebel
Comes but fails yet again to compel
O’ yes, that subliminally orthodox spell
What help in biding time to yell?  
Thanks again to all its surface swell

Time and the cruel ordeal of separation!
Relapse and the cool order of anticipation!

Don’t know whether it was,
A spontaneous segregation?
Can’t say if it was,
Pro to natural amalgamation?
Never thought of such a retrospection!
Won’t go again for,
What created that deviation?

So many parallel lines of ambiguous identity
Yet prevails the only fulcrum of innocent probity

Don’t know what completes me
Can’t say what repletes me
Never cared to know what depletes me
Can’t let happen what obsoletes me

Yet, at times, in Soulful moments
The thought surfaces, runs to meet me
Holding the identity, to complete me 
Caring enough to caress, to protect me
