How long?

In this darkness
that doesn't seem to end,
below this sky
with my tiny hope spent;
My heart reclines
in the corner of a hole,
searching for stars
that once were its own.
Dreaming nights
with a lingering croon,
forging dreams
on the silvery moon...

But in the blue horizon
I lost the trace of my love,
lost the purpose of my fight;
How long do I search 
without a light,
my eyes become darkness
with sleeping in the dark...
How long do I wait
for the place I belong,
with all my nerves screaming-
I may not be so strong...
How long will I crouch, 
battling the unknown,
for in my heart
there are no corners,
just holes...

I know this is a passing phase... I know this will end...
but the question is WHEN?
How long of these mood swings, this indecisiveness, this random feeling of guilt, regret, disappointment?
And the exams havent even started yet.
I guess I know the answer- June 7th when all my exams would finally end... but God.. that is so far... so.. far.

yet another depressing post :P
sorry people!


  1. I love the poem :D.
    Seriously ;) :D.
    It just makes a lot of sense :).

    Being in the same position but in a different way :) :D.

  2. I want to just scream and curl up somewhere and keep on blaming the whole universe :-P
    or watch movies.

    Just not be like this, if you know what I mean.

  6. Wish the darkness disappears soon.
    just cling on to whatever hope and joy you have!
    Eat chocolates and Ice cream, that will surely help!
