On being lonely-

On being lonely-

And she said, I’m going to be lonely,
There’s no one that can handle my tides;
She was echoing the words of her family,
Who’d imprinted in her- she’s too wild.

She had silenced the sound of her laughter,
And glided with- the sway of her hips;
She smiled without showing her fine teeth,
And chewed with her lips tightly sealed.

She dressed with the label- appealing,
For the family approved of it;
And it was only under the night’s Blanket,
She found the glimmer to be real.

Who’s to say that you’re going to be Lonely,
When your fate has been crafted and sealed;
It’s been written by the best of writers
And he’s designed you to be unique.

      1. You never miss to write ‘Ahmed’. ๐Ÿ˜‰
        Ramadan has been good here at my place in New Delhi. The summers have been kind this time around. How were yours?

  1. Hello Ameena,

    I like how the ending of well-written poem is pregnant with hope and assurance. Indeed, we will be what we will be, regardless…

    The word “Lonely” will always remind me of a profound article that I read recently.

    The writer explained her enjoyment of solitude, explaining this preference to dwell inwards in a manner that somewhat romanticised loneliness. Alas, what described her personality more accurately was โ€œAlonenessโ€ rather than loneliness.

    PS: Hereโ€™s the piece I mentioned- https://catapult.co/stories/the-fierce-triumph-of-loneliness
