    Engulfed in darkness
    Need some light,
    Someone to tell me
    Everything'll be alright.
    Someone to hug me
    And to Hold me tight,
    Someone who'll turn my
    World happy and bright.
    I'm terrified of what's to come
    Will I be enough, good enough
    A brilliant wife, in law and mum
    Do I surrender, give in to his whims
    And in doing so everytime,
    The spark in me dims.
    Do I hold on or let go
    My dreams and hopes
    That make me glow.
    Lying awake
    in the dark of night
    Wishing for someone
    to hold me tight
    love me and cherish
    No matter what may come
    Shall I strive, survive
    Or to my thoughts, succumb?

    Shall I strive, survive

    A multitude of emotions,
    A turmoil in the
    deepest, darkest
    trenches of heart,
    A fear of failure,
    Never being good enough,
    for me for others,
    'tis been like this, from the start
    Somewhere, there's guilt,
    Of being oversensitive,
    Over loving, Over protective
    Of making an issue of everything
    There's anger in a corner too
    For not standing up,
    not caring less, not withholding
    For myself a little something.
    In another part of heart
    There's longing, there's pain
    Expectations that get hurt
    And yet an undying hope
    Of being loved,
    being able to cope.
    I whelved them, trying so hard
    To keep them like that
    But they keep getting out
    One outburst at a time
    When they collide
    with each other
    they roar like a storm
    It's not pleasant like chime.
    I'm afraid of my demons
    They're scary, they're dark
    They harm me in ways
    Leaving me vulnerable stark.

    Multitude of Emotions

    I'm afraid of my demons
    They're scary, they're dark
    They harm me in ways
    Leaving me vulnerable stark.

    In pain, I found my relief.

  • winter_phoenix 114w

    My eyes used to twinkle
    Everytime I smiled
    There was a spark in them
    Always beguiled

    But that spark's gone
    Delight exists no more
    My eyes have lost their charm
    That you once used to adore

    If you look deep into them
    You'll find longing and wait
    You'll find disappointment
    Only this, is now my fate

    I'm stuck in a dark place
    There's a constant perplexity
    To berate you, to cry or let go
    Our love has such complexity

    I'm like a maiden in watchtower
    On an unfailing lookout for you
    You're a tomorrow that never comes
    I wish we could start anew.

    I gasped for air
    Sinking deep into water black,
    I struggled to come up
    Flailing my arms and legs,
    I cried for help,
    for someone, anyone
    To save me...
    To make it stop
    I could feel my heartbeats
    Thumping out of my chest
    I was choking
    Unable to breathe
    I could no longer hold it
    Not anymore
    It was too much pain
    Why wasn't anyone coming?
    Coming to save me..
    My family, my friends?
    That dearest one?
    Where was everyone?
    Was I invisible for so long
    That they've forgotten me
    Or do they simply not care?
    The pain was even more unbearable
    Mixed with this dread of neglect.
    If no one cares, is it even worth trying
    Trying to fight, fight to survive
    Survive to believe, believe in good.
    No, I must not give up,
    I cannot give up.
    Too much at stake,
    Unfinished business,
    So what if there's no one
    I'm not alone, I've me.
    This cannot kill me,
    This only makes me stronger.
    No, I'm not alone, I'll never be alone
    For I have me.

    I was a proud phoenix
    Then they burnt me alive
    I came out unscathed
    The joke was on them
    They trimmed my feathers
    But I didn't stop flying
    Although it was nether
    Then they cut out my tongue
    though I kept singing my song
    Of the horrors unsung
    Ah my eyes were left now
    But they took pity on me
    Left my eyes intact
    And I dreamt of being free
    So they killed my dreams
    Leaving behind only debris
    Thus killing me at last
    Extinguishing fire in me.

    Death of Phoenix

    My words are dark
    They cut deep
    They won't tell you
    About the whims and
    Fancies of this world
    They only speak
    of harsh realities
    Spitting truth
    like poisonous fire
    Showing you the world
    Which you've turned
    Your back on
    My words don't sugarcoat
    They slap you on face
    Waking you up
    from your dreams
    Dreams, in which
    you have escaped.
    Sometimes I may
    Paint a picture beautiful
    Of landscapes and waterfalls
    Of chirping birds
    and merry balls
    But then I'd show you
    What we have done
    To scar that landscape
    To pollute that fall
    Bloodshed and battles
    Hunger and lust
    All these I show
    For it is a must.

    Waking Up

    My words don't sugarcoat
    they slap you on face,
    Waking you up

    I've let my demons won over me
    Let them spread their poison
    seeping it into my mind,
    Stupifying me, causing inaction
    Was I naive, maybe...
    I don't really know but,
    I've remained quiet for far too long
    Been a mute, a tongue less wren
    Believing I have sung my last song
    I'd Let them drown my voice
    But not anymore
    Now I shall rejoice and
    shout out loud for the whole world
    to know, because,
    If not me... then who?
    If not now... then when?
    What demons they were you ask
    Anxiety, insecurity, failure
    But now I have nothing to lose
    I'll embark on a new adventure
    I have everything to gain, and
    I'll still be me, even if I fail.
    I'll still be me, if I fail.
    I'll still be me, if I fail.

    Cyber Bullies

    Too coward to come out
    With real identity,
    Spitting so much poison,
    To every entity.
    Masquerading behind
    All the digital screens
    Every individual
    they love to demean.
    Bullying others,
    spreading hate,
    Robbery, thievery
    And chaos they create.
    Calling names,
    Spreading rumours,
    Intoxicating games
    Duping consumers.
    A crime is a crime,
    And a criminal
    Must serve his time.
    These Satan pursuers,
    Put behind bars
    All these evil doers.

    I am an old soul
    Residing in young bod
    So tired of pretending
    And fed up of facade.
    I care too deep
    And fall too hard
    Wear my heart on my sleeve
    Though it leaves me scarred.
    Having No regrets, I believe in
    Taking risks, I soar up high
    I may succeed and rejoice
    Or the plan may go awry.
    I am an old soul
    Residing in young bod
    So tired of pretending
    And fed up of facade.
