My solitary recluse

solitude


How nice it would be—
to be unreceptive to the people you care about, to be cold and distant
to just be silent and lonely without explaining why
and they would wait ‘till I come back to my old self
and understand if I didn’t.

How nice it would be—
to wallow for days and not to be accused of being overly dramatic about it
to be sappy over a song because it pricks your heart when you listen to it
to look at someone’s face for hours without being reproached for swooning
or to just be in a trance because you're thinking of someone.

How nice it would be—
to be in the street
to be with strangers
to be sitting on a bench
not minding if it will rain or not.

How nice it would be—
to feel lonesome today and to be okay tomorrow.

u would regret asking me that. haha. here u go:

"..to be unreceptive to the people you care about, to be cold and distant to just be silent and lonely without explaining why..sappy over a song because it pricks your heart when you listen to it...to just be in a trance because you're thinking of someone..."

damn. quoting it again here makes it looks dramatic. yaiks.

then we would cancel out if we switch places. i am longing for the same thing, am i not? i could switch places with you, sure...but i have to bring my own baggage in the same manner that you would bring yours, hehe. lugar lang ang magbabago. o ano? game?

sometimes being alone gives peace. but not too much time being alone, it my sometimes lead to depression.

I could feel the words there. Parang ako minsan gusto lang magtago sa sariling kweba at me sariling mundo :P

Love the high key shot. Ok yung mono effect, me pagka sketchy which I like.

my gulch said...

Ferdz,yea, there are really those times when you just want to shut yourself from the world. be alone. enjoy that moment of solitude.

thanks for liking the shot. coming from you, that means a lot to me. hehe. :-)

i think everyone needs some alone time. i can totally relate to that :) it shows in the image how solitary you want to be. i especially liked the last part - to feel lonesome today and to be okay tomorrow. i think it's okay to feel lonely and just let it run its course. that's the only to way to savor joy and happiness.
