What’s this Dire Crave to Stay Lonely?

What’s this dire crave to stay lonely?

In this surreal world with an adventurous life

Filled with colors and sights myriad

And engaging populaces, unfamiliar or the next of the kin, all alike

 

What’s this dire crave to stay lonely?

For the insides spin on indeterminate dreams and ingenuities

Waiting to be discovered and tipped out

Lack of time and space, or is it all about priorities?

 

What’s this dire crave to stay lonely?

When the folksy clan more than seeks an opportunity

To meet, make merry and shower their unconditional affection

Festivities or routine, irrespective of the distance, abode or city

 

What’s this dire crave to stay lonely?

Dictating the shortage of privacy and independence

While the unsavored sweetness of doing nothing

Combines with forced management of your day, a boon or a penance?

 

It’s that dire crave to stay lonely

For it is the driving lack of social quotient, or so to say, having run out of it

In search of a chance to be alone with yourself

With some time off to withdraw into your casing, and be self-lit

 

It’s that dire crave to stay lonely

For a chance to exhibit your extremities boundlessly

The mood swings — from being a gem-of-a-heart

To the brazen-slash-through, however for a moment, unremittingly

 

It’s that dire crave to stay lonely

With the someone you consider your soul mate

They who not only pretend they understand you, but in all fact of the earth, they do

The one who stays by you, while your yellows, blues, greens, and reds abate

 

It’s that dire crave to stay lonely

Only just to keep the craving of belongingness alive

Amongst strangers and the next of the kin

To love, be loved, and float high on a social jive

 

Pray tell me, is this

A sadist obsession or a self-generated masochism?

For, for sure, as baffling as it gets

Yet rainbow-y enough while one looks through a prism
