    The distinction between loneliness and simply being alone - two different things. Good write Chandra. (Report) Reply

    I have never before read such a FULL poem exhaustively dedicated to the dual images of Loneliness and Solitude... It is fine to note that lonleliness too teaches us a lot.. Kudos to you Madam Chandra for your unfailing lines all throughout the work. (Report) Reply

    Soon I will be posting another poem, THE BLISS OF SOLITUDE which can perhaps be read as an annexe to this poem! (Report) Reply

    Great! ! How well you have brought in the difference between the two which by many are seen as synonyms! Chandra, your brain and imagination work in a superior way bringing out the subtleties of life's undefinable equations!
    Each time I read your poems, I am enriched! ! For this you deserve a full10 (Report) Reply

So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
