beautiful  solitude,  come

wrap yourself  around me

softly,  caress my skin,  offer

some protection  from life’s pains

come,  my friend…      fill me with

a peace nothing else provides

i  welcome you this night

close my eyes to sleep

just  for a little while…

until the morrow when

i am  forced back out

into the world again

leaving you behind

  1. This is so soft and soothing. I really like it.

  2. Solitude is not always what it’s cut off to be I guess. Soothing at times, and the opposite at others. Nice poem. :)

i'd love to hear from you ♥ thanks! {comments must be approved before they are visible}
