Alone!

"Arushi Ahuja"

I abide by the rules of living alone,
A book in my hand and crumbly sweet scone.
The hot pink colours rule my house,
The scented candles, a vigour arouse...

My curvy red Beetle hoots happily,
Taylor's love song playing loudly!
I can sit in my socks on my porch,
And play the guitar discordant and coarse!

I eat mac and cheese
whenever I please!
I sing aloud,
And dance around!!

What rules? What rules, Are you talking about?
I just make them as I choose my route,
The uphill or the curvy road,
A beautiful drive or a walk Alone!!
   

Written for a prompt by Mary at Poetry Jam!

  13. I love the way you have related being alone to being free. I think exactly the same, there's nothing as enjoyable as living on one's own. "What rules?" I love it! I'll hang it on my bedroom wall - I'm not joking! Thank you for this lovely and joyful poem!
