Depression – 2

Painted by Seema Pillay


“Sleep isn’t just a sleep anymore, it’s an escape”

Teary eyes with Muffled cries

Strength lost and Hope dies

Cloudy skies bring gloomy nights

Meaningless love and painful fights

Lifeless body in its bereft soul

Confused mind with aimless goals

Choked heartbeats in a broken heart

Gasping for breath as truth unfolds

Raging fumes of Burnt wishes

Drift in air in direction unknown

No one to wipe the rolling tears

While wounded lies the soul alone
