Lonely Night


Another lonely night with the stars and the moon for company, I am kind of used to this loneliness. Feels good to be with myself at times, listen to my heartbeat and feel my breath which otherwise go unnoticed. 

 
I wonder how peaceful and calm this otherwise chaotic world seems at this moment. The clock ticking away, the chirping of crickets, the siren of the faraway train engine...Suddenly these noises come alive as during the day they are hidden beneath the noise of stomping egos, shattering dreams, breaking hearts, crashing expectations and the noisy banter of our minds. This peaceful silence is lost somewhere amidst the chaos created by us humans.

Why we are like this? We create so much noise in about everything we do and then look for peace and silence everywhere…

  3. That's how it is, silence in the chaos we ourselves create is our primary aim!

    These are resonating words with my present thoughts, Me. Keep Writing! :D

  4. Feeling and soaking in the silence at the end of a chaotic day works wonders...listening to the inner voice, we can actually retrospect what has transpired the entire day. Although we create so much chaos ourselves, I am sure each mortal longs for a few quiet moments for himself.....nice and thoughtful post...:)

  5. profound thoughts! It is this very nature of us humans that make us go round and round and not end up reaching where we intend to.

  7. A beautifully crafted post...we are the problems of all our problems...through our expectations at times, unrealistic dreams at other and then over zealous egos and uncontrolled wants and desires...!!!

    the answer of all your question point to one thing...it's you...yourself who is responsible...don't point to the world...as i believe when you point to the world 3 fingers are turned to yourself...!!!

    good one again...loved it...!!!

  8. This is post describes the exact scenario I am in right now :D

    But it's very true why we humans makes so much of noise and looks for peace outside. When it's within yourself :)

    Such time with yourself is real fun many a times.

    Keep writing :)
