Poems

Loneliness

Trying hard to concentrate on the book,

She knew she was being looked upon as an alien in the bus

When they were all glued to their smartphones, both with eyes and ears.

Neither did they know her state of mind

Nor that she was trying to scrutinize

She was down in the dumps

Too scared to look out the window pane

or hear a song on her playlist

Everything reminded of him, even the air she breathed.

He came as a chill winter breeze and left like a thunderstorm,

destructing every single drop of love and hope in her.

Trying hard to forgive him, forget him and forgive herself

Her big brown eyes well up with fresh tears.

She was head over heels in love, not having a care in the world

But now she is broken to tiny bits, for which she blames herself.

She danced to mend her broken heart, indulged in hot chocolates,

Fought hard battling her own demons and went defensive

Alas! Questions still prevailed in her heart, Was I a mere distraction he wanted in life?

He has chosen to humiliate her with his silence, mortifying and bemeaning.

Withdrawing herself from any means of admittance

She has shut all doors, giving what he always wanted- solace, peace and space.

He haunts, in her dreams, by her side

When his hand finds her, making it hard to leave and giving her a soothing pain.

Part of her wishing to turn and go back in time

When…she believed in him.

She screams for help fearing of going into depression.

Lost, empty and tormented

not able to feel another thing,

her journey continues in life, hatred and loneliness.
