Voids.


I thought I had wings and dreamt of flight, only to realise they were hands. Could barely crawl, yet life had me running after people and things.

Everything was quiet and it was too late before I found my voice.

I searched for myself through the eyes of people and ways of the world; now I’m too lost to be found.

There’s no light in darkness yet there are shadows in the light.

I raised my hand in rebellion, bent my head in shame; Won the hearts of many, broke them all the same. I looked for hope in tears and distraught behind smiles;

It’s strange to know that you live

Only when you’re willing to die.

    I am not afraid of death. I just don’t want to be there when it happens.

    1. Thank you Sarge.
      Woody Allen was a comedian, wasn’t he?

        Woody Allen’s career is over, “A Rainy Day in New York” will be his last film, and most filmgoers will only notice he’s stopped working due to the newsworthy circumstances of his forced retirement. For many of the men involved in the recent wave of sexual assault allegations, the end came quickly, falling down on them like the blade of a guillotine. For Woody, the process was considerably longer and more complicated, with the court of public opinion locked in a stalemate for several decades.

        He did marry his adopted daughter!
        Yes! He is a comedian of sorts!

    Bhaiyaa, this proves that darkness is more powerful na. It can overshadow light any time. 😢 And the ending huh. Don’t be so depressed.

    1. And people wonder why I’m so dark.
      All the sadness comes from light and it’s night that puts us to sleep. Remember.

            2. What does he like to eat?
              What a question! So do you want me to write a book or should I make a 100 page post? 😂😂😂
              He will eat anything he finds…..

              Oh sure! I can do that! ❤️❤️🤗

  12. Every post that I read of you I discover a new person unraveling page by page they make me smile but this is the first time it was this heartfelt, vulnerable but yet strong. I knew it has been hard for u from your posts but this hard never could have guessed but guess what I think this is what makes u different and so strong. Idk if this is right or I am too young to say this but I feel that u hide a part of yourself behind those funny comments of urself though I am not 100 percent sure cause I have known u for a small time and today u gave away a small piece of that to ur readers.
    I am glad u posted this cause I know u r way too strong and not sure though but I think u will probably reply with a funny comment and that makes u so different and strong.

    1. I tend to overreact sometimes but life has been good to me, at least at times. I’m not strong. At all. But as they say, fake it till you make it. 😂
      I really appreciate you for writing this beautiful comment and trying to understand words behind the words.
      You’re awesome! Now gimme a smile.
