Solitude is sometime a choice.
Every now and then it becomes a burden.
The life I’ve chosen is the life I love.
I’ve always been surrounded.
By friends. By people. By relatives.
I observe them.
To think things over.
To process emotions.
I’ve tamed so many feelings.
You know how it goes when you want to protect yourself.
Trust issues I guess.
I’ve collected jobs.
I’ve collected moments.
I’ve collected lovers.
I’ve collected memories.
I did that by my own.
To own my freedom.
And sometimes I just don’t know what to do with it.
So I spoil it by locking myself up into solitude.
Solitude is my strength.
Solitude is my enemy.
It’s my inspiration.
It brings exaltation.
It shapes a hunger to draft my life.
It took me years to realise that.
I’m gifted with my mind, I’m gifted for creation.
I’m mostly gifted for freedom.
But let me tell you a story. The story of the woman I wanted in my life."
