Expressions - The Death of Silence

 I spent the long wintry nights cuddled like a fetus
Hoping I'm safe in my mother's womb never to see another day
Haunted by memories, carrying my dead soul and a lost mind.
I feared to open my eyes and see the emptiness within me.

My hopes, my dreams, my smiles and my love, all vanished
With just one word, leaving an empty pit inside of me.
My heart that once stringed the violin for you, now abandoned.
My mind that once obsessed for you, now in amnesiatic void.

I am not me but a living zombie, needing none and nothing.
Please move on like I never existed, as I never will be.
Everything died inside of me, including my inner silence.
Your words dug my grave and your absence closed me in...


- NOT another 'simple southy'.... Just call me a Madrasi...

Keep the Cheer!!!

Sheba, Pathos blossoms like a flower at the tip of your pen. Wonder how reconciliation and understanding would sound. God Bless.
