Come on in.


I think of blues as flowers grow out of the bruise; the rusty old chair sings songs of you. Eyes have shrunk, tears have dried, wrinkles on my skin have nothing to hide.

Life was bittersweet, people fell like teeth; I wash my hands with a few good deeds; you know, to live is to sin. There was a time when I wasnโ€™t old, my body was glitter and gold, dreamt with my eyes closed but the world had already been sold.

Took a path, took the next; there was love, there was sex. Then came tears, then came blood, pain and joy; hands, crimson red. You were here, you were there, where were we? Everywhere.

Mirror says it isnโ€™t me; what am I? What do I see?

Come on in, have some tea,

Pray for all the hopes Iโ€™d kill.

    Oh Bharath!
    This is so deplorable. I have read.. life is an echo what you send out it comes back. But, that doesn’t happen always….what you see in others(may be positivity) doesn’t exist in you. How much you give in you don’t get. How much you radiate and give love it doesn’t always come back. Some emotions are selectively numb and sometimes you can’t numb the darkness of yours in a light too. It’s just that sometimes you can’t find the moderate ground for this emotional distribution and then you find no reason to exist.

    Your words grapple my soul and take me through an endless tunnel of darkness. The heart-wrenching pain, the un-flowed tears, all the hidden fears, all come at me like a bullet train. All of them together hit me so hard while my soul gasps for one whiff of hope. But well, there’s none. There are hands moving haphazardly in search of one strain of silver lining. That too is null. Oh damn boy! How deep are your words! How brutally it cuts!

    1. Of course there is a silver lining. The darkness is temporary just like light. They replace each other and thatโ€™s a cycle. We blatantly believe in all the positive things ignoring the darker aspects, paving ways to false hopes which drive us into depression and then we consume more positivity again. Itโ€™s a vicious cycle.
      Accept what is.
