At long last

Marooned having chosen

Not to climb

Aboard the makeshift

Raft of rescue

Instead bidding farewell

To those desperate

Souls chasing the

Dreams of familiarity

I remain here

On the island

Choosing me over

The comforts of

Others knowing that

My aloneness will

Generate personal discovery

And letting those

Seek companionship as

A means of

Avoiding their loneliness
