Against a cold corner, I weakly recline
Amidst darkness, I reminiscently recall old times.
Like the days, when our love was divine
& those moments, when I thought you were mine.
Under the glittering stars, my heart weeps
Tears trickle down burning my cheeks.
Floor laden with promises you didn’t keep
Silence surrounds the noise I try to shriek.
Like a nightmare, that burns my brain
Scars, on my soul, shall eternally remain.
My heart bleeds with a pulsating pain
For you, in my life are a satanic stain.
I’m bruised and numb under the screaming stars
& my dignity is imprisoned behind corroded bars.
Your diabolical deeds stabbed innocent love of ours
Leaving me locked up and decimated with scars.
For years, I adorned your shackles of hate
But now breaking your sinful shackles I shall liberate.
Respecting myself I shall smile, I shall celebrate
Out from your torturous shadow, my soul shall elevate.
Fireflies will decorate my gloomy, ghastly sky
Healing wounds & bruises with stardust dye.
Away from your torments, my dreams will fly
Carving bliss of solitude in my crystal eye.
Note: Sometimes we do feel entrapped in a toxic relationship of sorts, that smothers the very essence of our individuality & happiness. It’s a painful experience when you love someone & they return the favor by acting like predators who relish every opportunity of feasting on your pride & self-respect as if you are their helpless prey. Through the medium of this poem, I just urge my readers to value & respect their own dignity rather than get manipulated in the name of love. None owns you, you well & truly are complete in your own self. ❤
