Although it is difficult
for a type who has accepted their solitude,
so that it has become a place of solace,
to admit that parts of them can be changed
by another, they must;
and soothe themselves with the thought
that although they are porous,
and can be moved or incited,
the following chemistry can transform,
and possibly even heal,
in the company of another.
One can not always be who they are in solitude.
Ones feeling and behavior is sensitive
to the affect of those closest to them.
Pride becomes docile.
Ego is humbled.
Pieces of you evaporate as others activate.
Passions grow hotter.
Insecurities shake and whimper
as one is rearranged.
Yes, solitude is a simpler place to act virtuously from.
