I walk alone.

Since when did writing get so easy? I asked myself for days, penning down thoughts, explicitly expressing the inexpressible. Days under the roof and nights under the stars were barely enough to scratch the surface of my mind; the depths remain unexplored and emotions, uncanny. I admit, I was crazy enough to talk to walls, waiting for an answer but what am I to do? I seek solitude.

They keep asking me for answers, wait for responses. How do I give you what I myself lack? The nails that scratch my skin have no sense of touch; theyโ€™ve endured persistent bites of anxiety. I wish I were that resilient. Now I walk the streets that Iโ€™ve always known, in the shoes Iโ€™ve always worn but what I always had elude me; those words, those feelings, the tears and cries;

The melancholy.

  1. Thought provoking writing. Loved the way many unexpressed thoughts just got some way to reach out. A bit unsettling but beautiful words. Hope you find your way to answers soon.

          1. That it is, at times…. External factors; love, family breakups, failure puts us in a mess. Need to work on ourselves I feel. My morning dose for you ๐Ÿ˜Š
            By the way.. Put that shit in a compost maker. It will help the plants! (I know this is a bad joke) ๐Ÿ˜ถ

  2. I have absolutely no pleasure in the stimulants in which I sometimes so madly indulge. It has not been in the pursuit of pleasure that I have periled life and reputation and reason. It has been the desperate attempt to escape from torturing memories, from a sense of insupportable loneliness and a dread of some strange impending doom.
