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.

While sitting to do some thinking
The flow that came was charming
I usually don’t follow the swing
But I felt it could be distinct

I saw the flashback moving live
Memories rushed on a drive
I felt you looking into my eyes
I spoke to you, there were no whys

Living the oddities, life’s absurdities
I don’t buy the dreams, their realities
I know the line, its existential me
I know what is, what wasn’t to be

While sitting, talking to me unspoken
I knew I had to be left heartbroken
When I crossed the line, let you come in
But unlike the flow, you stayed within
