Let Me Be Alone With Me

Let Me Be Alone With Me

A Poem by Rain
"

I love life/I love people. When alone I think of both. The noise of life can be overwhelming. It is in solitude I can see and understand things more clearly..

"
i wish i was
a bird with wings
to sail above
everything
high above
the homeless camps
broken people
exit ramps
take my chances
above the clouds
look down upon
the weary crowds
let me glide
above it all
the greed and hate
the shopping mall
 
because i don't need a lover
i don't need a friend
i don't need you to lie for me
hold my hand or pretend
i want to ride upon the breeze
let it guide my destiny
i just need a heart i know
let me be alone with me
 
i wish i was
a bird with wings
looking down
on wedding rings
pushed in back
of musty drawers
with musty dreams
of moon lit shores
i want to fly
beyond the sight
of everyone
who hurts for spite
above the wars
fought for greed
a world that's lost
it's dignity
 
because i don't need a lover
i don't need a friend
i don't need you to lie for me
hold my hand or pretend
i want to ride upon the breeze
let it guide my destiny
i just need a heart i know
let me be alone with me

"a world that's lost
it's dignity"

This sums up the necessity for moments of solitude, to let us get above it all, forgetting all our woes and minor worries and look down upon the world as a whole. Excellent.

The comment about a world that's lost it's dignity is so fitting, one of the reasons we need to escape. Nothing is sacred or private any more.

Well done.

That was very moving and well written. The world has indeed lost it's dignity. Being one with yourself, which you described by flying above everything, is an important part of escaping the world we live in. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could escape the lies, the pain, the disapointment? I'd fly by your side if I could =) Nice write =)

I like it. I don't care who you are or what your story is, everyone needs to just be with themselves for a while. It's the whole reason I take the long dark windy roads home at night:)

This is spiritually beautiful. I believe we all wish to be free and fly from negativity...look down
upon a world that is slowy destrying itself. We all need to be alone with ourselves, just to enpower
ourselves with the strength to overcome what is among us.

That's why I'm a bird my friend. It's much better up here at times. Of course the view from above can be upsetting. All the things you mention here ruin the view and can make everything feel overwhelming. I think anyone who reads this can relate to how you feel. That's why I've pretty much stopped watching the news. I'd rather not be informed about the latest child killing or mass murder. I'd rather just go sit in my nest and caw. Love this one Rain :)

This is absolutely amazing, Rain. I love the way the it unfolds with the bird telling of what he flies above. Super great write!

ah... a wonderful writing almost one that could be sung in a song... I like the thought of being alone with me. I'm not one for flying though, I could see myself as a lilly in a rose bush garden, for most would pick the rose over the lilly and i could quietly be. Nice job..

I so loved these last lines here, This is a very well put together piece of poetry. I can understand the wanting to be alone and having time to your self. Very well written.
