“I think only when you are truly alone can you see you never were.”
Kelly Moran, Summer's Road

Thomas Mann
“A lonely, quiet person has observations and experiences that are at once both more indistinct and more penetrating than those of one more gregarious; his thoughts are weightier, stranger, and never without a tinge of sadness. . . . Loneliness fosters that which is original, daringly and bewilderingly beautiful, poetic. But loneliness also fosters that which is perverse, incongruous, absurd, forbidden.”
Thomas Mann, Death in Venice

Dietrich Bonhoeffer
“Many people seek fellowship because they are afraid to be alone...let him who cannot be alone beware of community. He will do harm to himself and to the community. Alone you stood before God when he called you; alone you had to answer that call; alone you had to struggle and pray; and alone you will die and give an account to God. You cannot escape yourself, for God has singled you out.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Ayushee Ghoshal
“One day, I will wake up with a terrible longing for you. And in some corner of the world, your heart will skip several beats at the thought of my name. And you’ll finally know what I meant when I said: When you stand near a burning pyre, the heat tends to rub off on you.”
Ayushee Ghoshal, 4 AM Conversations

Ayushee Ghoshal
“They either come back or they don’t.
That’s what you tell yourself.
That’s what you learn.
As you go through mundane days
with so much of pain beating in your
chest that you feel it will explode.

You strike days off your calendar,
waiting, going for a run,
picking up a new hobby,
while trying to numb that part
of your brain that refuses to forget
the little details of your skin.

Soon, you start sleeping in the
middle of the bed, learn how to
get through the evenings alone,
go to cafes and cities alone,
you learn how to cook enough
dinner for yourself and just make
do without the kisses on your neck.

You learn…Adjust..Accept..
The tumor of pain already exploded
one lonely night when you played
his voice recording by mistake.. by mistake..
But you didn’t die.. Did you?

They either come back.. or they don’t..
You survive..”
Ayushee Ghoshal, 4 AM Conversations

Eraldo Banovac

“I forgive you
All I had to offer you was sadness
My eyes shed sadness
My face speaks sadness
My lips smile sadness
My voice spews sadness
My touch spreads sadness
I forgive you for leaving, for I have become an infectious incurable virus threatening to destroy everything you are not

Such a happy delicate thing she is, isn't she?
She has no idea, does she?
How long before you turn her into sadness...”
Evy Michaels

Ayushee Ghoshal
“Men like you happen once. Women like me prefer to live our lives cautiously with your after taste, lessons and splinters of broken heart underneath our tongues.”

It is that they see me hanging off the cliff screaming 'save me, save me!' and they choose to walk away
And you only lend me your hand because my brokenness makes you feel whole”

“When you realize you don’t matter, the world becomes inconsequential and claustrophobic. You feel trapped inside your body, and your mind. Nothing can take you out of desperation, unless they take the brunt of your loneliness and make it their own.”

But I do know that the love that you have bestowed on me is more precious than the biggest pearls discovered by the sailors on their voyages of prosperity. I too sail on myriad voyages in the ocean of my life. And your love holds my ship steady in those turbulent waters of life when even the moon does not show her face to the world!”

“Sometimes the man of your dream only belongs in your dream.”
Precious Kerme

“It's slowly breaking her down
Consuming her breath
Fighting her strength
She doesn't have much time
Pieces will be the only thing left
Of the will buried within
She's crumbling down inside
Crying out for help
Running out of life
A hero should suffice
To save her from her disguise”
Evy Michaels

Mehmet Murat ildan

Adhish Mazumder
“The Loners' Prayer

In every life,
On every road,
Give me the strength
to walk alone.
At every turn,
With every twist,
Give me the strength
to take the risk.

Under every roof,
Above every need,
Allow me to plant
sweet comfort's seed.

Beneath every skin,
Within every scar,
Give me the strength
to find respite for all.
Despite every word.
For every soul,
Give me the strength
to walk my path alone.

©2018 Adhish Mazumder - The Loners' Prayer.”
Adhish Mazumder
