Elusive Solitude

To clear mind clutter
I seek with desperation
Some time to myself
THAT ELUSIVE SOLITUDE
Some time to myself
I seek with desperation
To clear mind clutter

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
