Lonely Evenings - poem


Nariman Point, Mumbai (Image Source)


Lonely hearts
gazing at the waves
dark sea scary
at least to me

What peace do they get
at Nariman point
Doesn't the gaiety around
make them feel worse

As I stroll along
as always with family
may be I'm wrong
do they choose to be alone?

  2. It's interesting to me, who quite often choose to be alone, that couples and families even think about the loners! Wow. I really like this poem. The poem might be an invitation for those who hold fear of the sea or of loneliness to face their fears. Try it!

      I guess there are those who are alone, and those who are hardly ever alone :)

  3. The sea to some is where they are least alone. I am not the only one who sought solace in the sea.

  5. I do wonder sometimes if people do choose to be alone. Sometimes, I think, we might feel a bit sorry for them....but maybe they are alone by choice.
