Realization is a sudden cold breeze

in the middle of summer nights

a sudden waft at the pondering thoughts

an instant craving in the middle of the night

and your angst and worries have found a safe haven

/a home/


Nestled deeply in your resplendent mind

a constant push and pull

gives you the sudden gentle motion

which keeps your puny self, alive

kicking your spindly legs


In this time

which is barren and yet still survives

and you are constantly pulled and tugged

between the realms of dreams and reality


And time slips on your back split the moment in two

you are alive enough to realize this

you are not alone


Solitude is your companion

always and forever.
