Chasing dreams
Milestones to be achieved.

I was writing for Raquel's March competition but felt a bit of blocked. So, I decided to write poetry to stimulate my brain. Maybe it is inspired by the character I'm working on or maybe it's just me, deep inside. I really don't know.

What else

March 26, 2020


Darkness surrounds me.
Anxiety hunts me down.
Fear follows me wherever I go,
What else do you want to know?

There's nothing left.
I've lost everything in a stupid quest.
Marigolds are weed to me,
What else do you need?

I know, there's no turning back.
Too late to find that I've lagged.
But memories don't leave me,
What else will it take to heal me?

Dreams are just a clever cage.
I'd be forgotten as one turns the page.
I'm opaque, untouched by rays,
What else should I say?

There's still a star in me, 
Shining brightly.
Just waiting for dawn to rise,
What else do you mean by life.
