loss


i have always had
the gift of solitude
time alone with my thoughts
books
music


so when i leave that time
to be with special people
i find (for me) rare enjoyment in company
talks
ideas
laughter


why then do i so resent the leaving
of these, my special people
i do not spend all my time with them
but what i fear is no more possibilities

    1. I think so, and as you get older, you realise you can’t make new friends who will have experienced so much of your life with you. there just isn’t that much time left

  1. Good to see you again after – what – over a year?
    One would think solitude would make one less choosy about friends, on the principle that any food is a banquet to the hungry, but actually the opposite tends to apply when the solitary existence is by choice. Then, quality really counts.
