Craving Isolation

I crave isolation. 
After that first call 
I wanted to close my door 
and hide under the covers. 
Two children 
meant more to me 
than isolation. 

I crave isolation. 
After the second call 
I wanted to close my door 
and hide under the covers. 
One daughter and new love 
meant more to me  
than isolation. 

I crave isolation. 
No other calls have come 
I still want to close my door 
and hide under the covers. 
People who love me 
let me know 
I mean more to them 
than isolation.  

I am learning 
to resist the craving 
for isolation.

  1. This is deep. The world is not willing to let go of us.

    Just saw a short movie on Womensday, where the protagonist declares a break from family, and is heading for a month long vacation to Goa. But she returns saying what is a holiday without the family?
