By Riddhima Gupta
I don’t wanna do this,
I’m going insane.
There’s no way that can change,
For them, I’m one huge mistake.
So, I’ve decided to take all this as an easy pill to swallow,
decided on to control the things I can,
Letting go of the things I can’t.
My head’s full of thoughts,
I can’t take it anymore.
I do everything wrong,
The chances I don’t take,
For them I’m no one, just a mistake.
Holding everything inside i want to let it out,
Dying isn’t the thing I think about.
I will make people happier maybe,
Without any life.
I try to make them like me,
Life is bizarre with its twists and turns
Like water would certainly wet is as fire would burn.
I know everything happens for a reason,
Sometimes I wish I knew what that reason was,
Things go wrong no matter how much I try
And leaves me with no other choice than to lie.
Maybe it was me who was always wrong,
At least let me know what my mistake was.
The flower that withered for you,
At least don’t,
Blur it out in the gaze of another bloom.
– Just one last thing:
They say-“Sad eyes once had happy stories to tell.”
What about happy eyes that have sad stories to tell?
