            Perfect Solitude
                                 By Sami Khalil                          

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I want to invite you
Even if you're uncomfortable
To my perfect solitude.

I want you to relax
Take a deep breath
Mind you this imprisonment
We are being glued.

Would you happen to know
Or have you overlooked
The backgrounds we share
The velvet thoughts
The adverts fading away
Into the hypnotic mood.

Lady of grace
Of brighter mornings
Of mislabeled nights
I want to remake songs
Where everything is
Merely a cover
A muffled substitute.

I want to lead in love
Keeping it low key
Where every prelude 
Is a quiet rendition 
To these two hearts
In perfect gratitude.

I want to invite you
When you are comfortable
To my perfect solitude
To my perfect solitude...

I was once told that solitude is to be destitute of Love, or the one you love; I was much younger then and I didn't believe. Now, with all these years on my shoulders, I'm a believer..
Now to your profound poetry; the perfect solitude would only be not that, but perfection with the one that makes you whole.... Lovely, and apologies for going off in at tangent

For me, there are multiple layers to this piece. A new love, invited, to replace the old, perhaps? A nice, rhythmic piece.

The language employed is exquisite, the tone so gentle, that the whole poem lulls and gives the reader time to reflect that though we need people, we need interaction, just as importantly, we need those moments of solitude to refresh and invigorate us.

Beccy.

This piece is uniquely different from most of your verses. Good thing, i did not need to browse a dictionary :). I think this can be turned into a beautiful love song.

I always liked your style. Free verse is the best ;) Means your mind is full of wanderlust.
"Lady of grace
Of brighter mornings
Of mislabeled nights
I want to remake songs
Where everything is
Merely a cover
A muffled substitute."

This reminds me of what my other half always says to me. "I want to write our story, love. Not sit back and let you go". I think it's sweet.

Very nice.

'Where every prelude -- Is a quiet rendition ' As to 'perfect solitude' - where two are one, perhaps?

There's a happy change of style with this beautiful post, Sami. Your medium is more free verse than structured, a lesser usage of complex words, more delicate, more naturally loving, perhaps. Maybe there's a more familiar air about your phrasing? What- and whichever, it all just flies into the mind's busy eyes, mind and heart.
