Back To Loneliness - Poem by Akhtar Jawad

Not here, not there, not anywhere,
peacefully I was sleeping alone somewhere,
neither I was seen nor I was touched,
I spoke to myself and was never heard,
none of the senses ever witnessed me.
Oh loneliness! You had distressed me!
Burnt in the fires of my first felt pains,
to extinguish the fires I desired the rains,
in search of clouds I left my home,
what Romans do I did in the Rome,
down pours of love put off the fires,
no more alone in a crowd of desires,
a vagabond cloud passing by with a shower,
turned the bud into pink rose flower,
but the winds that brought a cloud for me,
left loneliness and a shroud for me!

    Verily, man feels loneliness even amid a large crowd and his dear ones.
    The feeling of loneliness is well expressed

    There is an intrinsic loneliness inherent with being a human. Trapped in our mind but able to interact. Able to feel profound loneliness in a large crowd (Report) Reply

    At one time or the other, we feel lonely in life! To feel lonely in a crowd also is not unnatural! Man is gregarious by nature. Most men detest solitude unless otherwise made through voluntary choice! A beautiful poem picturing a state of mind of gloomy thoughts!
