Who Are You When You Are All Alone?

    Who are you when you are all alone?

    When no one is watching.

    Where there is only you.

    What welcomes you then is your solitude.


    A buddy per se ain’t alone,

    he’s lonely when devoid of any feeling.

    When there is no wait,

    nothing can be offered to bait.

    For, a man without a want is alone.


    Accompanied by thoughts of hope, and love,

    in the crevices of oblivion,

    seeking recourse in alternate multiverse,

    engulfed in a fiasco, surrounded by raging silence,

    I am not alone.


    An air of despondency

    Drowns us in schmaltzy

    Works us up in a wretched frenzy

    Unaware of the divine gaiety

    Hidden like the moon during day

    In prosaic language one would say;


    “Kid, move on from the fallacy,

    You’ve got the vow of amity,

    By own soul, until hell freezes over”
