Listen With Your Heart

I’ve always valued isolation
silence is my friend
a tactful comrade never too demanding,
in lieu of banal conversation
blissfully I spend
a moment graced by tacit understanding;

but how much comfort is eschewed
in lithesome arms of solitude?
For all the rancor and unrest
a caring word still feels the best.

Beautiful. I find comfort in solitude at times. Just not all the time. One of the most rewarding things in life is sharing...you can't do that alone!

Ya know what's even worse? Sex by one's self. I find a partner makes the experience so much more rewarding.
