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 words and the soul they had
Still sound so meaningful to me

Cannot say why I read them still
Again and again, wishing for more

Words that push the lost person in me
To be found, to become soulful again

The words and the soul they had
Given a life by your presence

Words, now personified by your absence
Cannot say why but they stayed

Maybe, to be with my loneliness
To heal, when I seek nothing but you

Cannot say why I still care for you
Maybe, your silence still speaks to me
