Lose Yourself.

Disclaimer – I wanted to write a poem on some things for weeks that were bugging me. But exams came in without knocking on the door. This is the final product after 4-weeks struggle. ;_; Have a great day. ❤️

When I was all alone

When I was searching for a home

Black clouds everywhere

So cynical,

Showers above me

Should I be sad or happy

That man before

I should have never been,

An item of comfort,

Which I found solace in

It had been a big burden

Carrying,

Aggravated by the masks

All around

Calling it an aberration

You say it reduces my reputation,

It’s the only ray of light I’ve got

In these clouds of darkness.

A better person

I had aimed to be

But the bullet, it,

Came back at me.

Wanted to change myself,

Help myself

Tried so hard to fit in

Everything was wrong

At the right moments

My world was at sixes and sevens.

This earth was rotating

And I was just waiting

For my veins

To be filled with glitter.

We write on this page of life

With ink of pain,

All that extra effort

Hopefully, didn’t die in vain.

Are they really as lovely and good

As they seem,

Are they really as cool

As they seem,

Just gambled everything

And faced my fears

To be broken down into tears.

Sunshine piercing through my eyes

My heart skips a beat

The mind glows,

Fires up every nerve

Like there’s no tomorrow.

These thoughts keep echoing

In the back of my head

Until each and every brain cell

They shred.

My clothes are worn,

My heart is torn

Tortured and toyed,

My patience is gone,

But I shall never admit defeat.

I wake up once again

My misery plays on repeat

I’m fading away

My knees are weak

My existence, petty,

I just wrote this so I could say

Mom’s spaghetti.

I slip into improbable fantasies

Without a trace of resistance

The ferocious thunder roars above

Snap back to reality.

I followed you into a dark place

I became your prey

Beautiful

How you did it with such grace.

I wake up once again,

For this beautiful sunshine

Singing my name in glee,

I wake up once again,

Knowing that a heart beats

In rhythm with mine.
