You are so trapped in this reality that you don't realise that this is not actually real. You've been sleeping all this while. Deaf ears to what you don't want hear. Blind to what you don't want to see. Unknown to problems you don't want to face. People that you don't want to miss. Situations you don't want to come in terms with. Fooling yourself again and again. Just staring at a blank screen, thinking hard but not really thinking. Trying to figure out something while still ignoring things at the back of your mind. Laughing out loud when your heart is suffocated with grief. Putting up such an exterior that it's difficult to know that it is actually fake. A masked face that only changes when alone. Nothing stops around you, even though you wish it to stop. And the minute you wake up, this bubble will burst. At that moment everything will be crystal clear.
There is a long way to go,
And too many people to be an obstruction.
Taking things to heart will make them win,
So ignore them and keep climbing the rock.
I cannot deny there will be moments of loneliness,
You would want to melt,
But remember you'll lose it all if you do.
Some people are temporary for a reason,
Their effects wear off soon,
Like the drug you mistakenly took.
You may be in adversities often,
Trust me you are being strengthened to face any storm.
You may be struggling for survival,
I am sure you'll be okay.
You're never alone,
Don't choose options that are extreme,
Reach out, express.
I could not pen down the words,
How hard i tried.
As if the ink had a mind of its own,
Refusing to bleed.
It also had developed a liking towards you.
I don't blame it.
I spend hours thinking about you,
Imagining what i would do, if you ever did come back.
No it does'nt pain anymore,
I wonder if my heart feels anything at all.
I've tried playing sad songs over and over,
Their effect was quickly worn out.
I wish i hear your footsteps here,
Then my ink would not act the way it has been lately.
For there are no restrictions on dreaming.
Spread your wings,
For you can go places if you wish to.
Don't let failiures stop you.
You are not that weak.
Open your heart,
For your love will keep you safe and warm.
Just when you think it's the end,
Be assured it's the start of something new.
When you feel the sand is slipping away,
Remember to be brave.
