You work in solitude
Calming your mind to phrase your thoughts
Those that have been pushed to the corners of your heart
The one that you can feel the pulse of life

You work in solitude
Disseminating it for your new found world
Of power and wealth,
adorned by your undivided attention

You work in solitude
Pretending  to be unaffected
You proclaim that you can live without me
Having challenged the destiny to keep me away
Even striking off my presence sans any guilt

You work in solitude
Listing out all the accolades and achievements
Every  merit and credits you earned all these years
The adolescence that paved through the next planned goals
Unwavered by unhealthy opinions and circumstances

You work in solitude
The ego gaining all its prominence
Your passion, success are all aligned today
Not abridged by the lateral existence of me.

I, called Love was dominant in your Life until then
Where we dreamt  about different things together
Spending  hours discussing about different topics
One that we wished to lead a change in this society, in particular, and later the world

We chalked to- do lists, various  agendas
A participant to every activity alongside  you
Then, you began to slowly abandon me
Preferring to stay in solitude or joining others
Coz, I was mere accomplice
According to you, which didn’t garner much likes
Failed to attribute much fame
Nor provided scope for the desired wealth.

I sit now in solitude
In the corner of your disowned heart
Holding on thy veins of hope
For materialistic world may make you rich
Only Love, your ardent lover will stand besides you in the end.
