The world feels like a lot lately,
And I seek comfort within four walls
As the voices in my head elude me,
All I hear are my heartbeats loud
Amidst a silence so deafening,
I don’t realize spacing out,
Words I could once pen fail me
And all I’m left with are grey clouds.
Songs I once loved with all my soul
Now feel so distant and cold,
As though behind a wall made of glass,
The melodies now all fall flat.
I keep wishing for the storm to pass
Only for my heart to sing again,
But when it rains, it truly pours,
And though I’m numb, I’m in pain.
I love the clouds and I love the rains,
And petrichor once put me at ease,
Now I feel nothing but blank,
Words still elude me but I try,
With raindrops on the window
And the hum of a gentle breeze,
Perhaps this is how I find myself again,
I’ll be here as long as I breathe.

There’s a lot going on right now and I know that a lot of us are drained out and very exhausted, whether it’s physically, mentally or emotionally. But here’s a reminder that you don’t have to keep finding ways to be productive right now because all of us are just trying to hang in there, and that is perfectly okay.
The Shubhster. Xx
