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.

The days are long
The night is hollow
Thoughts are gone
Life seems done 
Lonely in the yore of 
Classical romance
The moon looks 
Quiet n composed
Living the pain 
Hiding the rain 
Burning inside 
Sometimes that
Shadows the peace
On a lonely night
