Solitude - Poem by Jay P Narain

The pain of loneliness fettered me for a while,
I felt like a wandering blind man looking for sunshine,
I saw the pain of leaves departing from trees in the chilly fall nights,
I heard the murmur of rain drops falling from the dark menacing clouds.

It was all so quiet all around me,
There was nothing to say or hear about me,
I was living dead looking for a glimpse of life,
My soul was entrapped in the cage of solitude.

Now free from shackles of loneliness,
When I search for happiness in my soul,
My heart again longs for the peace and tranquility of solitude,
Where my thoughts would soar like eagle in deep blue skies,
Where I would be with me and my soul on a distant mountain top,

Now when I seek to discover and be in peace with myself,
I find solitude a bliss which heals my soul,
But how can I forget those haunting lonely days,
When solitude was a curse igniting the flames of desolation in my broken heart.
