The Never-Ending Darkness- A Depressive Episode
A poem by Aarthy
Alone , hopeless , I have nobody;
Tears flow down my cheeks , lonely as never before; Burning my dry cheeks, painful, no one
To wipe them off...
They don't ask me, involuntary well up
And overflow (helpless again) ,
For they only know all the unspoken words;
Tears O' tears , didn't get warmth in others, Compassion uh! Annoyance they trigger ....
Souls I thought mine, have let me down,
Buried me alone;
As much as I try to prove to myself,
than to others;
That I am loved and have million lovers ,
That these tears make me realise the truth.
I am weeping to myself,
I just don't , don't want this day to usher.
I like this , my blanket;
I just love to be here, all day;
Wrapped in myself, all by myself....
Still out of somewhere, in this darkness,
Of sorrow ....
Enthusiasm and will light up a spark ,
( ultimately to be washed away by these tears )
God, my only hope, save me,
Before this depressive darkness,
Engulfs me , completely.....
Desperately not wanting to be desperate
I demand love, empathy from this universe; Some kindness, some compassion;
Oh! This spark wants to believe....
Better days would come....
Prove me right...O' world;
Before the spark is swayed off again,
Buy my constant dear Tears......
