            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

I agree with Lydia. This is as close to what I have read as meditative. It is psychedelic writing ... haha... I thoroughly enjoyed the mood that came to my mind, assisted by the picture.

Take a deep breath, relax and be imprisoned in love. What more could a person want. To enter someone's solitude and drink deep from the cup of love.
Very nicely written.

There is almost a feeling of meditation in this write, Sami. "Take a deep breath"...yes, and drink in the soft romance and magical images in every line. Lovely work, my friend. Lydi**

The irony is well explained in the poem. To someone it might feel awkward, of thinking solitude by breaking the most principal law of solitude, which is to spend those moments with someone. But you have done well enough here to show what it means by Perfect Solitude. Solitude is the best way to know yourself and the method you have mentioned here can work too. To have someone who knows you better than yourself, only he can show you the true image of yourself without making you to feel any guilty.
Looking forward to read your other writings ....Well done Sir

I like the irony in this piece. I love to escape to my own little spots of solitude, but I need to be alone for that. To invite someone into that special place of solitude is indeed a wonderful thing, though many people miss it. We really need less of life's noise around to truly connect amidst the rat-race we call life.

Great poetry.

I really adore the peace of solitude & the company it brings. I need to get back into writing songs because I loved how easy it was to write lyrics & tell a simple, compelling story. Sometimes, as writers, our solitude is all we have & we feel lost without it or when it becomes interrupted by the outside world. Perfect read & I treasured each and every line.

To love in the peace of a perfect solitude is the desire of every heart deep down. And your words depicts the power of silence between two hearts so amazingly. Captivating yet mesmerizing! Kudos! Thanks for sharing :)
