Emptiness

Emptiness

A living lie so true to deny
Like virtually moving
So plastic it never crinkles.

But
A heart that knows
Something is missing
keeps one pushing
the soul wandering.

This empty spaces within
keeps one reminding
of those dreams
long lost in surviving.

Nothing can fill the void
all those grandeur
cant coverup for the black hole
engulfing light.
the star of life diminishing from sight.

An illusion of self motion
A balance lost within
Seeing everything move
While one is stuck within.

And you want to cry
but its all dry
a feeling so helpless
like an ocean of water
but cant quench the thirst.

Unending search
to riddles of time
a decision taken in a moment
robbed of those feelings divine.
No more warmth
Nor eyes shine
No words comfort
Those frozen mind.

To continue living
without healing
every moment carrying
a part of me vanishing.

This emptiness
cant be filled
till the part
lost in space
is brought back to fix.
Till then i continue
with this emptiness
no more living
just existing.

  2. Gayatri..you are gifted with talent and a creative mind …every word speaks and every line strikes a chord with the reader….the controlled expression of emotions …when one is devoid of emotions than he or she ceases to live and just exists…..for some the emotions dry up due to situations they go through and yet there are many who do not understand emotions and some who misuse ..
    Stay blessed….stay safe…keep blogging..🙏🌹🙏

    2. Very truly spoken controlled expression of emotions so that it doesn’t go extreme.

      1. Yes…there are many who get carried away and go overboard with emotions…aim should be just to convey and not overload..
