Alone Together

Jaibala/ February 18, 2016/ Poetry/ 22 comments

Happiness must abound,

When so many people surround,

Clatter, chatter, mysteries known

All together, yet, all alone,

Waiting bidding the clock to chime,

Within space and across time,

Maybe there’s reason, maybe rhyme,

Unaccompanied companions, desolate kin,

Completeness lies in ruins,

When so many people surround, all together, yet, all alone within space and across time.

  2. yea.. this is how I am – I watch a lot – silently, sometimes even when I’m talking to someone.
    My alone-time is precious to me as well. It’s what brings peace πŸ˜€

    1. Yes Pix. I knew that this is something you would relate to. Alone time is the recharging that we need for the rest of the times.

  3. Despite the chatter you see from me, I am a very alone alone person in actual. I prefer being on my own than with anyone else. Love my company always!

    1. My mind thrives on alone time. I do love some company, but my company is the best for me.

  4. Loved this poem, makes so much sense in reality!

    1. Thank You so much Alok πŸ™‚

  5. Thought I had commented? Anyway, here it is again. It is a fact that we are all actually alone πŸ™‚ We just go along with the connections we make and do the best we can πŸ™‚

    1. I actually agree. We make connections only with a certain few, and not all for a reason. But it can be very lonely in a room full of people you don’t just want to be with.

  6. I know that feeling. Bheed me tanha! Loved the poem!

    1. Thank You so much Rakesh, and welcome to my space. Exactly Bheed Mein Tanha

  7. I always feel this…most of the time. There is a deep yearning which cannot be filled up by anyone. Either our standards and needs are high or the people are not up to our expectations πŸ˜›

    1. Its good to have high standards no? I am very happy with certain people. You know them too. πŸ™‚

  8. This sort of reminded me of how you were at the WIN function – waiting, watching, silent – waiting for the right moment πŸ˜‰ With the right people.
    Finally, a poem i get. Well, if i got it correctly.

    1. I know you would get this one, and yes exactly how I felt that day. πŸ™‚

  9. Beautiful Jaibala. I know exactly how that feels in a room full of strangers.

    1. Thank You Lata πŸ™‚

  10. I know the feeling. When people are around, it seems like happiness is there, and the talk is about all sort of things. But at times, depending on the company, I feel like I can’t wait for it to get over. I’m around people, but still, they don’t really matter. There might be a reason for the get together, but still, not one that really matters to me.
