In Solitude

by Maria Isabel Cecilia Pascual
(Manila, Philippines)

I sit here alone to have a glimpse of those tiny flower

That grew on the ledge of this rocky hillside

So precariously placed

Yet so vibrant in colour and alive.

I sit here alone on a slope of a hill

Waiting for the dusky clouds to reappear

Hoping that it will obscure

The sombre look in my eyes

I have accepted my fate

And my heart is at peace

It doesn't thump as loud

Nor does it feel pain at all

No, I do not wish to feel

I'd just like to sit here in silence

Feel the soothing breeze

As it comes and goes

Life is never constant

Like clockwork it does stop

Let time stood still

To at last rest in a muted state

No words needed at all

No remorse of any kind

Just silent sighs of relief

To say goodbye finally...
