Solitude and sanity

A boisterous crowd,
Cracking up in unison,
Bubbling over in laughter,
Smiling in excess.
Unknown to each other,
Began the hesitant hello,
Within a couple of hours on,
Had all gelled well into one.
Heads throbbing with sound,
Ears reverberating with rings,
Moved on away from it all
A haven, in splendid isolation.


  1. Some splendid isolation after all the sound can be a welcome silence!

  2. How I remember that experience of discovering the other person, of wanting to know more, the tentative questions, the look in their eyes...and of course, the touch.

  4. A good example of when solitude is welcome..nicely written
