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.

That flux in my thoughts
Their verve and my nerves
You swayed,
Leaving me dismayed
I cried
Distracted and lost
It was all so dark
Confused, hopeless and stark
As if the soul was sucked
The intermezzos deserted 
The music disfigured
Life connected,
More like a rhapsody,
And not,
With the harmony of continuity
The flux of the loss
Living the pain in thoughts
You swayed
Leaving me dismayed
