When I saw you,
All I saw was guilt,
My past and all the mistakes,
Regrets and doubts that lay awake,
You are drowning,
The weight of lies on your shoulders,
Forbidding you to float,
For you have erred countless times,
Now is when you admit to your crimes,
You are drowning,
In the depth of the ocean,
You are on your own,
In the darkness of isolation,
Finding your way back,
To the world of devastation,
Your humble abode and where you belong,
You are drowning,
You are inhaling water,
You watch death approaching you,
Your thoughts seem to scatter,
You are screaming but your voice so muffled,
You want help but your spirit so unruffled,
You are drowning,
Your eyes began to close,
Your body began to froze,
The little I know about how it goes,
The window of hope barely visible,
The noise of silence only grows,
You are drowning,
With a fear of no tomorrow to be seen,
With a fear of turning off your life machine,
Dreading that there might be no light at the end of the tunnel,
Dreading that there might be no peace but only uninvited trouble,
You are drowning,
So will you ask for a second chance?
Will you ever want to live again?
Will you want to give in to this world’s trance?
Will you want for yourself the pleasure of pain?
You are drowning,
Don’t be scared of death for it’s merely a trailer,
Life has been killing you bit by bit every single day,
Don’t be scared of the ultimate failure,
There are times when it is inevitable to escape.

Writing is my passion and that is what I do here on this blog. I write about everything, whether it be Nature, Love, Hate, Relationships, Humans, Personal Life (where I discuss lessons learnt through real-life experiences), Food, Philosophy (sometimes) and much more. I write in any form whether it be Prose or Poetry. I am in search of ‘Myself’, hence there is not much I can tell you about me. Perhaps, I have a very brilliant idea. Why don’t you come along with me on my journey? I will always care to share and you can also enjoy the ride. For now, this is it. I am ‘ME’ – a wanderer in search of a fulfilling life. Until next time, Love Living Life! I express my sincere gratitude to all my Readers! -Naima

    NO! I will NOT be scared, you scare-mongerer, for that is what you prone. I am not scared AT ALL, I can take it. Little less can I say about you, you talking for yourself, you’ re so scared, you’ re pre-defeated, I’ d knock you down like a barrel, you are alone, you are lucky, you are breathing, you are really seriously lucky you are one of us.

    It burns, I don’t know if I want the burden of life on my hands again.
    It burns.
    I know I’m drowning, I know I’m full of regrets,
    But why does it burn, when I asked for the calm pugling of liquid, blue and green to fill me?
    It burns.
    Why does it burn?

    Naima, this is splendid! Yes, life is taking its toll on us. We need to buck up… I don’t want to die bit by bit each day…

    • I am glad the message got through to you, Aditi. I seriously loved your blog. The piece you wrote about India’s daughter, I agreed with every bit of what you said and it was very well-written. I also loved your poems so i followed you and may be I will see you around more often :))

      Blessings and love,

    • Isn’t it? But then the life we intend to live on the edge, unsure of every single moment — isn’t that scary?
