Cavern of solitude

Encased in a metal cocoon
of solitude.
She can think in the silence
filling the cavernous corners
of the armor
she has built over time.
She makes her way through life
hiding her true face
behind a helmet.
You can’t think 
your way through life 
but she is determined 
to try.

Leave sometimes

Stay in your mind,
don’t venture outside.
There is nothing out there
but pain and hurt.
But somehow there
is also nothing more in here.
If you don’t leave,
you will drown.
If you don’t leave,
you won’t have the chance
to find healing and life.
So, leave your mind sometimes.

Solitude lets me breath


People often say that
being alone
is something negative,
as if they can’t stand
the thought of you
functioning without them.
But their intervention
has led to more pain
than solitude ever could
and if they truly loved you,
they wouldn’t mind if
you longed for a few moments
of quiet breathing and calm thoughts.
