Solitary Perception

Ask yourself.

Is the moon as full?
...when no one’s watching it with you.

Is coffee as fulfilling?
...when no one is sitting across you.

Are songs as melodious?
...when you can’t picture a face.

Is a fireplace as warming?
...when no one shares it with you.

Is a flower as sweet smelling,
...when bought by yourself.

Are words as meaningful?
...when written by a stranger.

Is a movie worth watching?
...when you walk out alone.

Is the day as bright?
...when you’re all grey.

Are you really as happy?
...when you’re not with me.
