Alone

Top post on IndiBlogger.in, the community of Indian Bloggers
Sometimes it gets lonely. So lonely that it feels as if I’m the only person on this planet. Alone. Totally alone. And on such nights, it is only the loneliness that talks to me. Talks to me in a language that just the two of us can understand! Because it has been my companion. Since long! It talks. And while it talks, it transports me. It transports me to a bygone era. An era where a part of me, or wait; the whole me lives. Still. The funny thing being that this loneliness wasn’t in sight then. Today, it enwraps me like air and the irony is that it feels exactly like lack of it. A complete blackout; not of light, but of my emotions. Or maybe not. Because at such times, the only emotion I can feel is ‘YOU’.

    We are born alone. But when that someone is not there alone, we end up feeling alone...!

  4. There is indeed something magical in these words :-)

    I like being alone at times, when I'm left with my thoughts. Since I'm always around people I hardly get time to be alone. And yes when it feels lonely, it feels really weird!
