To my muse.


It saddens me.
You were here looking at me, smiling; I open my eyes to darkness that surrounds me. The same darkness brings you back again when I close my eyes and I’m beguiled.

Dreams are prisons and memories are torments; yet we surrender. Wilfully. The only answer I can give to any question that has you in it is “I don’t know”. I indulge in emotional debauchery, clinging on to subtleties of my imagination; overdosed on hope.

The alleys that I trot are infested with infidelities and vices of broken and the damned; there is no escape. I try to run away but an eerie comfort clasps my hand and I carry these shackles towards the limbo of our broken promises.

    The whole thing is beautiful Bharath but… “The only answer I can give to any question that has you in it is “I don’t know”. I indulge in emotional debauchery, clinging on to subtleties of my imagination; overdosed on hope.” 👏🙌 …I so much relate to this!! I always like to think that I know. But I don’t!! 😂🙃😥

              You don’t know if they do, just like the other questions, to which you said your only reply would be “I don’t know”? Related to that person… Memories are torments to which we surrender wilfully, that’s so true. Great work Bharath!

              Thank you Tisha. So I was exchanging comments with Arshnoor this morning and I was wondering, is your last name Sheikh? Are you Muslim?
