Men are solitary soldiers
defending their castle
– of Souls and Spirits –
Not you, cordially invited–

A sparse and desolated– Island–
distanced from Chaos
removed from Troubles
Difficult to access, not you

Intruders, we dare not be
rather, Mind explorers
my World- and Yours- collide
our paths overlapped in Time

Indeed, a great narrow palace
Spacious, safely secured
‘tis a pristine yet winding bight
untainted, difficult, Naïve

Opposites– Complementary,
Yet a Fortress cannot
construct on sand, for Sea
washes Everything– away

an Isolated Island cannot
stand Haters, Wars and Fights
peacefulness is Destroyed–
serenity can’t be Disturbed–

only with Enforced distance, we’re Free
We must withstand the Space–
of You – and – Me–
From afar– hints of white delight
