I never thought
Of myself as

I never thought
Of myself
Requiring another
To define me,
To convince me
That what other's
Thought of me
Was important.

I never understood
The word

In a world so
Full of life,
The fact that
I was not in
The presence of
Another human
Being human,
Did not make
Me feel this

I am not lonely.
I am not alone.
I am at peace.

if you never know the presence of another i imagine it would be easier...i am comfortable in being alone when i must but i def need my contact with others...

in the vicinity of nature, loneliness often dissolves.but then again, one needs to sensitive enough to appreciate what nature offers.

Not to have felt the word is a beautiful place to be and stay.
