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.

He still feels you
Inside him
Why he cannot say
But you stay
In his eyes
And he knows
It’s real
Like his Present
He still thinks you
In his thoughts
As if
It was just
The yesterday
As if
You still come
To make his days
You are not there
But even if you
Decided to look away
Your memories chose
To stay with him
You looked away when
He was looking at you
The why of it
He could not get
A why that
He doesn’t feel
To ask anymore
His long wait
Has survived the life
The prolonged silence
Has stayed its course
He has been
The way he was
Assimilating the pain
His internal chaos
He still thinks of you
The way
He thinks of his life
Why he cannot say
A why that
He doesn’t feel
To know anymore
