Isolation


20130403-223052.jpg

I look around
at all the people
surrounding me
Talking
Laughing
Serious
Sad
There was a time
when I would wonder
about their lives
What made them tick
Why they looked
the way they did
What made them smile
Laugh
Fight
Cry
But now I find
I wonder no more
Their lives
don’t touch me
I’m all caught up
in my own
little world
The storm within
The calm inside
I can think of others
in the abstract
From a distance
Where their plight
impacts me
but little
And so I sit here
Silently
Quietly
Distant from
everyone
Immersed
in splendid
isolation.
