How could I let go a collection of years!
Ideas, dreams, opinions, and oh! tears
Carefully filled with countless thoughts;
a mind, that has never known to stop..
Sinking deep in a murky bottomless pit
Tied to a lurking fear, is there no exit?
Every nerve in this body stretched taut
Is now cold to the answer being sought
Waiting for someone to clean this mess
And make a little space for happiness…
Then one day I decided to press ‘pause’
And deliberately observe each clause
Awful yet alive with moulds as in blight
Some ghosts of those long out of sight
Having cherished them all this while...
I found hard to own an archaic compile
It was time to bid farewell to each kind
And to begin I stepped out of my mind
A deep breathe in to cape each thought
And breathe ’em out, a monstrous lot
No voice in my head, just empty space
As if I had just finished a gruelling race
No questions, no opinions and no plans
No illusions of any existential command
Unplugged from remnants of the past
Ready to re-discover the present at last
