Fortress of solitude

P.C :- Vrolans @ Pixabay

As april sun bears down heavily,

Cacophony of confusion is rested,

In this fortress of solitude,

Silence is its soulful empress,

A palmist offers to read familiar lines of my palm,

Conjuring fortunes beyond moons,

Delving into deep philosophies this late afternoon,

I’m transported to a place when a princess would have walked these silent corridors,

Dancing in glee, ah! a time long ago,

The brocades, pearls, silver , she would’ve flaunted,

Splendour and grandeur of a time long ago,

Now, a fortress of solitude.
