"It's better to burn out than to fade away..." -Kurt Cobain

Reminisce in the silent version of joy,
No ripples in the air
That used to represent your voice.
The atmosphere is not too crowded,
I have room for my thoughts.
The world around seems to slow down,
And everything is at peace.
Breathing becomes less of a chore,
I actually enjoy living again!
Oh how the toil of socializing
Has made me forget the comfort
Of utter and complete silence.
This is where the true joys of life
Come out of hiding in the shadows.

This was inspired one morning when I was all by myself. It reminded me of how much I love and enjoy solitude and isolation. :)

It was a cool flow, but I felt like it was too short to elaborate on your feelings.
