Why My Hunger For Solitude Aches My Heart

There’s this ache
Right here
Right under my chest
It hurts,
With each passing day
It hurts even more.
Because life happens.
Work, friends, and drama coming uninvited
Sadly, there isn’t a snooze button for it.
Oh, I long for something,
Something I’m so scared to do
To travel
To embark on a journey
Get lost,
Oh, I ache for that longing so,
But soon
Soon will come the day
A day peaceful from life.
And I will make those plans
On my own
And just set off
Fly for hours in the clouds
And see the world
To finally,
Heal that ache
That’s still there,
Right under my chest.
