I Love Ngoc Lan

Solitude

Lost in her own thoughts
about destiny… joyless thoughts,
as she was surrounded
by millions who applauded.

Beloved by many
who exclaimed over her beauty
Yet feeling so utterly
alone… melancholy.

Solitude has come to claim
its unwilling partner,
“Reach into the deepest
corners of your mind”

She asked, “will I find comfort?
or will it be despair
that will claim my soul,
inch by inch, thought by thought?”

“Reach into the deepest
corners of your mind.
In this solitude,
you shall find tranquility.”
(Came the answer)

Surrendering
to Solitude,
this master of endless nights,
she let go… “Bonjour Tristesse!”
