Here’s tomorrow, gone by so quickly today. And yesterday is yet to come.
Can we travel backwards in time, or we just assume we’re moving forward? Or it is a loop, played over and over, till time forgets our existence?
I stand in an unfamiliar territory of the known,
Suddenly unrecognizable to the place I thought I’d known, for the longest span of time
Strangers are we mutually
I stand before you, don’t you know me do you?
And you fail to recognize me anymore
Nor do I recognize you really
Too many masks of accordance to the others
Adorn your pretty face
I. Im lost in being what you wanted me to be
I do not know what stares back at me in the mirror
No longer what I fought for so long, yearned to be,
Remains inside my dreaded soul
An apparition now, just, a ghost, untiring, lost and drifting
Where to now? Enough. No longer in your presence
No more to live by your greater of all expectations
I quicken my pace. Those roads that lie in abandonment await,
My rustling footsteps.
Larger strides, out I get from this blackened hole, towards an uncharted territory
Its many terrors and revelations all set to unfurl.
