Be There, Tonight…

Come, sit beside me;

I’ve noticed you sneaking on me for a while now.

Isn’t that why you came; to keep me company?

Thought the towering heights of this city,

And the bustling noise around,

Would be a perfect camouflage, and I could escape you.

 

And escape I did, but just for a while.

Don’t know what got in my way today,

That I let you catch up with me.

Maybe it was starting to get a little lonely

In you absence; we have had our share of fun,

Under the rain, and with smoke in hand.

 

Oh, how I’ve missed you, though at times

You make me cry.

Be there, Solitude, tomorrow.

Be there, tonight…

      Either I should be flattered, or you are new around here..!! There are a lot of brilliant minds around… I’m sure you’re on of them..!!

    Beautiful poetry! – experiencing the old amid the new.

  8. We can try to hide from lonliness, but we always let it find is again. It keeps good company at times. I enjoyed this.

    Many people don’t believe we can be alone in a crowd and just as many can’t see solitude as a welcomed and sometime unwanted companion. -Good write.
