It’s hell out here!
Come feel the scars for once ,
If you dare
You know how it is here
Here, you gnaw with the thoughts of expectations
That is never going to to be the reality
‘cause you will miss each mark by an inch
Still your hope never dies
And you continue to wallow with the pain of anguish.
With that decked up smile and I give a damn look
You’re almost there, picture perfect
But the bitter sugarcoats resonates,
And nightmarish memories frequents ,
Broken , still you flap the broken wings
Only to be bogged down a bit harder this time .
Yes ,those were just myths
Rather some stupid school book shits
Angels, fairies- and all those morals
There is none of it here.
Here , love stabs you with loads of love intact in the eyes.
Here, you can just keep perishing
But as you perish , take all of them in an overlapping embrace
Never to be resurrected ever again
Or , just be your own light
Glow till you outshine or burn out.
