Absent, silent, sole,
Solitaire, Santon, pariah,
Either, neither, solus,
A state or quality of being along, solitary or remote.
Implies the absence of all others: inaccessibility, withdrawal, seclusion, isolation.
A state of separation.
A lonely or secluded place: wilderness, waste, desert, emptiness, wasteland.
In silence, vacuous and devoid.
