The Melancholy

By kannamma

My eyelids weren't heavy, my chest was!
My eyes wasn't moist, so wasn't my tongue!
The fear of unknown, pulling me down!
The pangs of guilt, accompany uninvited!
Heart wishing for the unexpected!
While my soul was afraid of the numbing cold,it experienced!
The darkness of my surrounding, trying to hide my demons!
The sounds of the demons , ripping the soul apart!
Movements around me reminding me of the world around me!
The joyous memory inducing the longing for joy!
The proud personality walking soulless, among the souls that never cared!
