For the first time

For the first time,

many of us

are faced with the new reality

of being alone

even among a group of loved ones;

unloved ones; workmates;

colleagues; friends; foes;

schoolmates; roommates; family;

strangers; aliens; exiles;

nomads; communities; antagonists;

gossips; conspiracy theorists; alarmist;

praying bands, music addicts, film

lovers; recipe sharers; facebookers;

lovers seekers; wife-snatching;

tv watching; ice-cream eating; wine

tasting; dieting; weight-watching self.

For the first time

many of us

now know for sure

many of us are alone

and we are no more alone

when we are alone.

Only those who are not alone

are now alone.

Interested in some of my published works?
