Alone - Poem by Kelly Kurt

A tree in a desert
A comet in space
An idea unexpressed
The first or the last
Perhaps the only
Asleep in a dream
Lost at sea
A bug in a jar
The nose on your face
The moon in our sky
The first second of time
Adam before Eve
Me, before you

    beautiful poem Kelly I love how you think.
    I rarely feel alone by myself
    Being alone is often a very creative space
    but sometimes feel alone in a crowd

    Thank you, Norah. It was written a long time ago. I now have lived in the basement of a closed down,160 year old church for 10 years. I spend at least 95% of my time alone. There are regularly periods of several weeks or longer when I don't see another human being. In the end, we do travel our lives alone.

    Perfection in the expression of being alone.
    With trickery of words we try to decieve ourself that we are not in one way or another.
    The loss of a mother, the loss of a brother, the loss of a lover.
    The how doesn't really matter, as much as learning to cope with it.
    Making the best of all situations.
    Ignoring the word futility on a daily basis.
    Not looking for companionship in all the wrong places.
    But general acceptance that it is part of the human condition.
    Not a disease that must cured in order to have the ability to love the world any more.

    Cheers to the inspiring, thought provoking poem.
