Solitude, my Anchor

picture source:

I treasure the silence that surrounds me,
the absence of the shifting energy
and perceptions that stream through me
and invade my being unwanted,
whilst in the presence of others.

Solitude subdues the inner voices
that drive a need to numb my consciousness,
a place where I feel I truly belong,
to roam with the urges that capture my heart
without pretence or explanation,
where my truth and thoughts
live unforced and free.


  1. i hear you, beautiful thought..."where the truth and thoughts are unforced and free"

  2. Alas, being alone with myself is often a very scary place to be. Thankfully, I have never been truly alone, and He promises that I never will be.

  3. Solitude subdues the inner voices


  4. "I treasure the silence that surrounds me..."
    "Solitude subdues the inner voices..."
