I slip into the waters of my mind, waves lapping at my ankles.
I look around and see nobody near.
I walk, until the water surrounds me on all sides.
I’m the only one here.
How peaceful, my solitude!
I reach the edge of the shelf and look into the depths;
It’s all silent and dark.
I drop off the side, and sink so very deep.
I have embarked.
How deep, my solitude!
I have just my thoughts to accompany me;
How I love them!
This time I’ve been given all to myself
Is a gem!
How wonderful, my solitude!
