My New Year's Eve Party

My New Year's Eve Party
                             by michael cahill

 That new year’s eve I slipped away
 with solitude.
 Just why I did I couldn’t say--
 my attitude?
 Well, something told me all’s not chill;
 this party thing--I’d had my fill.
 I had to seek an interlude
 with solitude.

 Alone just suits me to this day ...
 a soft etude.
 The noise and strife left far away
 ... the point eludes.
 It isn’t hatred; love’s my pledge.
 I just find crowds put me on edge.
 I know I’ll best embrace my moods

                             with solitude ...
