Solitude. {Poem}

Yesterday I was alone,

today I am alone,

tonight I will be alone,

everything goes to dust sooner or later,

like a previous breath, all is gone.

There’s only a star,

and a half moon that is reaching for me,

clouds of the sunset melt away,

as the night lands inside the sea.

The wind is dancing with my hair tonight,

while the breeze coming from the sky touches my face,

wildly the night invites—in its bed my soul

to share its secrets and pour its invisible grace.

A dog barks out there,

while few cars make heavy rumors,

I am still alone,

solitude has become my foreinger friend,

who touches my hands gently,

it speaks into my heart, a song filled with air and breathing.

My voice gets stuck suddenly,

only the solitude can make me speak without words,

only solitude can make me drunk without drinking.

Another star is born into the dark sky,

now i see that solitude is not my enemy,

it’s because of solitude, I can feel alive,

It’s because of solitude, that I am discovering my longing, to open the cage of my heart,

and fly like a bird in the open space, joyful and free.
