Scribbled Thoughts & Coffee

The Age of Loneliness

In the distant horizon the sun wakes for the day, casting its life on frost covered leaves as birds sing of life and a hum of energy echoes.

Streams of cars are a constant flow, many of us live in a daze of reality and a haze of city fumes,  constantly talking yet never thinking we stumble throughout our days, ego fuels our way.

Tears run down my cheeks hitting them as rain does a street. I scream for answers to the silent sky. Footsteps lie in my wake, where I have been and where I am to go guide my path.

I have seen cities sparkle like diamonds against black velvet skies, the sun set across Europe and the vast desserts that blanket the Middle East. Yet I search for myself, under every rock and down every crack, as the age of loneliness stabs me in the back.

I went away for the day, to escape the constant rumble of city that has consumed my life. We were up at the crack of dawn, we drove for around 4 hours, finally we arrived in a frosty Canberra.

First stop was NewActon a Luxury Apartment/Hotel development where we enjoyed a delicious breakfast accompanied by the soothing beats of the DJ..

        

After that we went to a personal favourite when visiting, a Chocolaterie named Koko Black… The interior is something out of a french film scene, with rustic dark woods and chandeliers, grand chairs and a counters filled with handmade chocolates.

  1. I feel as if I can relate to this post on every level – the feelings described are just so similar to my own. Beautiful.

    P.S. You look stunning in that photograph. 🙂

    • Thank you for your comments, they are always so lovely.

      I think many of us share this feeling somewhere deep down, just many of us fill the gap/void with material objects or people to push these feelings down! It takes an aware person to realise this, and it looks like you are one of them xx
