Consumed by fear and insecurity,
This heart ebbs away into a silent sanctuary.
Got disillusioned as I collided with reality,
And so I hopelessly tried to defy gravity.
You’re the battle that I choose not to fight;
Ours is the story that I choose not to write.
Ignored strange feelings as I take this flight;
Couldn’t find enough reason to believe this is right.
Dragged myself to a point of no return;
This old habit that I need to unlearn.
Can’t afford to take another recurring pattern…
Waited, decided to just let it all burn.
Shrugged the confused idea off my thought, As everyone tried my demeanor to decode.
I amplify the drama with this very sad note; Now I’m down to another melancholic episode…
