The Loner


When I’m alone, I’m alone with myself,
But alone may not be what it seems.
For myself can be trusted to always be there
And never makes fun of my dreams.

But myself knows myself and accepts what it finds,
And makes no demands on my soul.
So I cling to that heart where the best of me lives,
for that clinging makes sure that’s it’s whole.

I peel away slowly the armor I wear,
That armor protects all that’s me.
And the me that’s inside is fragile indeed,
It’s been hidden where no one can see.

When I hold onto me, it’s not that I’m cold,
It’s not that I don’t want to share.
It’s all that I’ve learned and the grip of my mind
That makes any sharing so rare.

My ego is tender, it’s what makes me, me.
I hide it behind a closed door.
I open that door just a crack at a time,
And only a crack, never more.

About Krishnendu Sanyal

I am an introverted, indifferent sort of person. I am not necessarily emotional or really hateful, though I can be. I am just not bubbly and happy all the time like. In fact, I probably have a hard time putting up with people who ARE happy all of the time. I am intelligent and artistic, and maybe a little bit of a loner. I do have friends, I just don't mind being alone. Gives me time to think. I am little blunt, and I usually tell it like it is. I am classy, and simplicity goes a long way with me. I can be a little off-beat, my interests may not go with "the norm". As for my friends, I love them deeply. I may not have many close friends, but I choose them carefully. I am incredibly loyal to my friends, and they know they can count on me. I can do just about anything for them, and they know it. I don’t show my feelings so much, but I have feelings. Deep ones, too. I feel things deeply, and I can be passionate - I just don't show it. My sense of humor is probably a little dark, but I do love to laugh. I can be totally crazy when I open up, but I rarely do. Me, in a nutshell: Classy, introverted, loyal, a bit of a loner, unique, edgy, deep, artistic, crazy (rarely), intelligent. BLACK! .
