Insanity

Madhuri Deepthi S

I never knew who I was yesterday
I never shared what I want
Till today
Breathing the air my body shivers
Keeping away the heart cowers
Why am I surrounded by injustice
Who am I to change this
The bloody voices as tiny as ever
Clips my mouth shut
Not to make any noises
My eye twitches every time
My third eye captures
The raw desires
Can't differ between
Fear and joyful serene
The loneliness begins
To fend off my craziness for
The friendliness I don't deserve
I can't survive the pressure
Of people looking at me
My thought process changes
As my heart cough up ranges
Of depressed pasts
I can't say no more
My soul’s ruptured mi amor
