Time to be Alone

There are times to be alone.

There are periods when loved ones

cloud the brain, paralyze the hand,

lame the foot, make weak the belly.

 

Those are times when the ink will not flow,

it wants to drown the house,

float it away, lose it in ocean.

 

Those are times when you lose all strength.

Those are the times to be alone,

as you know you are, anyway;

all connection is tenuous,

yet seduces to surrender.

 

How can you know yourself,

your ears are full of the words of others;

you cannot hear your own voice.

 

Those are the times to be alone,

so the only lies you hear

will be your own.

 

Then,

write them down,

if you must.
