Long Enough

When you stay alone for long enough,

Finding peace in your solace and finding your still in the silence-

Is probably the best thing you could do in this world.

This world that’s chaotic, toxic and dull (generally)

When you stay alone for more than ‘long enough’ though,

You are all there is in your world.

Your thoughts, your feelings, your human.. just disappears

If not the constant reminder of not being able to pour out.

That’s the point, isn’t it? As a human being, if you don’t pour out, what do you do?

Even plants don’t stop from pouring out.

They stay still and silent and unfocused.. but they never stop pouring out.

A constant inflow and outflow of thoughts, feelings and emotions is a particularly human thing.

Would becomes of you if you’re human, to stay the stay and not being able to pour out?

Anybody can pour out happiness,

Anybody can pour out popular opinion,

Who pours out pain here?

And to whom? Or who?

When you stay alone for more than ‘long enough’ you are birthed different, just in that process you’re changed.

An extrovert sits alone in a bar and a strong person begins to crumple.

Not that that is worse anyway,

But all of it happens behind thick curtains that reflect nothing.

No reflection of a room that plays warzone 24/7,

Is what?

No, it isn’t slow death.

It isn’t even quick death.

Not even death at all.

It’s invisibility.

Plants don’t exist in our periphery, do they?

They only exist in focal view.

Even if you see them, you hardly see the little droplet of water in the afternoon sun left since the gardener water the plant.

You don’t see it. You can’t.

You’re not meant to.

Humans aren’t meant to not pour out.

They’re meant to pour out.

They’re meant to express.

That’s what a human being is.

When you stay alone for more than ‘long enough’,

You are all there is in your world.
