#LostInOblivion

Shadows In the Mirror

In the mirror, I can see

The eyes of a stranger staring back at me

Soulless, vacant and lost

Searching for the place where all the smiles and happiness were tossed

 

In the darkness sublime, I grope the walls

Looking for the bygone joy, among pitfalls

If only I could pretend

Pushing away realities and making assumptions end

 

I wish I had a heart of stone

With neither memories or emotions to atone

Blissfully ignoring the obvious

Remaining carefree and callous

 

Her face seems familiar

But her eyes are that of a stranger

All I can ask her is a question

Who are you and where did I go?

#DriftingApart

dandelionSearching eyes, peering through the mirage of life

Thoughts like wild torrents tumble, causing a strife

Igniting a spark that pervades the soul

Strengthening the scaffold that makes me whole

 

My mind wanders with nothing to hold

Through dark corridors, that were once cold

Pondering over emotions gathering dust

Memories drown, in the amnesia sea, covered in rust

 

I walk on its shore, with foam kissing my feet

As if begging me to halt, albeit for a beat

I smile at the naivety of the waves, being so nice

They hardly knowing I’ll never compromise

 

A distant lighthouse became my guide

Cajoling me to take my stride

I glanced upon the deep blue sea

Blowing conch shells that greeted me

 

My true essence shown

I keep dancing on my own

Soaring through the wind on a night dark

I, from the world, am slowly drifting apart

#AnotherLeaflet

This is another poem that I wrote during my tenure as a content writer, in the first company. Though there’s no particular significance to the poem, I just penned down thoughts as they came. I hope you enjoy reading this, just as you liked the previous one.

Life Without You…
It’s hard to explain in words, how I feel without you…

Walking on the street, reminiscing the past,
Even in a crowd I feel so alone,
Feels like yesterday,
But it’s been awhile since you are gone,
Your absence has left a gaping wound in my heart,
Seems like my world has been ripped apart,
In the darkness of the night,
When the whole world is lost in slumber tight,
I sit by the window, allowing tears to stream,
Listening to my heart in pain and sorrow, scream
Pondering over what went wrong and where,
Thinking of the things you never wanted to share.

Faking smiles, so that the world won’t know,
The hurt, the pain I try not to show,
No matter wherever I am, whatever I do, 
Everyday is a battle, I struggle to go through,
I find myself always thinking of you,
Looking back at the times we were together,
Basking in immaculate love and care,
Brings a smile and a wish you were still there,
How do I explain, what do I tell,
To make you understand that I’m going through hell,
I wish you could know how it hurts me,
To think of a life without you…
