:: Song of the Lonely ::

:: Alone Again, Naturally ::

In a little while from now
If I’m not feeling any less sour
I promise myself to treat myself
And visit a nearby tower
And climbing to the top will throw myself off
In an effort to make it clear to who
Ever what it’s like when you’re shattered
Left standing in the lurch at a church
Where people saying: "My God, that’s tough
She's stood him up"
No point in us remaining
We may as well go home
As I did on my own
Alone again, naturally

Alone again, and happy, naturally.
Everything happens for a reason.
Loneliness should not be equated merely with being alone.
In fact, loneliness should be like a jug of long island tea,
Difficult to imbibe initially, but serves as an effective cure for sobriety.
On a more serious note, loneliness exists to remind us all
That we are all but alone, that attachment is dangerous,
That love can persist without possession.

The trial unfurls.
Like an awakening belladonna.

actually, u're right. we're never alone. you're never really by yourself. somehow, when i thought that i was by myself, i realized, "hey, here i am, with Loneliness right by my side (and again)." and this thought in itself, is comforting. the silence is its embrace, the cold of the air is its warmth. and then, i fell asleep in its caress, though i can hardly feel it. but, the thought is there.

and i didn't think that attachment is dangerous, for everything happens for a reason, right? so, if everything happens for a reason, and for a reason everything happens, then if it's meant to happen, to what degree is the importance (save extreme situations, e.g., matters of life and death) of the event's severity?

if love can persist without possession, does this mean that one is detached? if so, do we have to be detached now? and why do we want to be detached? if it is to deliver us from unnecessary (then again, who decides what is necessary, or not) hurt and damage, then where do we go from here if we are successfully detached? what's the reason? if one is truly detached on all (subjective) levels, then i believe that one has greater responsibility and purpose to mankind. if not, detachments on a personal level are maybe meant to tide us through difficult times, while providing a glimpse of what maybe the true meaning of existence is (subjective to various personal and or group / religious beliefs).

i think i have been detached once. then i realized, by not possessing, i have possessed, in a metaphysical sense. i was happy, content, and i didn't think that i needed anything or anyone else. and then in the recent years, i looked again. there're too much beauty in this world for me to be detached this early. friends. family. compassion. i felt something clicked in me. i want to be attached to them all. it's part of the journey of being a human being, no? and then maybe, i am to be detached (again) when the time comes. don't ask me when, but i am sure that one will know should and if when the time comes. and maybe then, i would realize the true purpose for my detachment, and i think you already know what that is.


i think the sense of loneliness only comes when one is feeling self-pity. so i don't let myself go there.
