Staring at the vast stretch of blank sky, I found the same emptiness dwelling deep within me;
Not batting an eyelid as the ambers burnt incessantly, leaving behind smoke engulfing my soul;
The rain drenched me to the extent of rot and the sun parched me to the extent of lifelessness;
No breeze could caress my heart, no rainbow could soothe my sight for there is no pain left either.
Amidst the cacophony of voices defining and defying me, I chose obscurity as my companion for I fear being identified;
As the echoes from the past are still eloquent in my ears, I chose to strangulate my opinions for I no longer wish to be heard;
Eternities passed by me as I longed for the solace of appreciation, I chose to embrace the earth beneath for I no longer seek;
Celebration of ironies and hypocrisies triumphed over acceptance, I chose defeat gleefully for there is no pain left either.
Crushed by expectations, my hopes fluttered in the cage as my dreams battled for their existence and breathed their last;
My knees trembled as the ground of reality kept slipping away and the broken arms struggled to keep up the burden of charades;
Making my way through the corpses of relationships, odour suffocated me as the ghosts of formalities pinned me down;
The line of difference between compassion and pretense blurred, as I lie cold in tatters with my heart charred, there is no pain left.
