I am just confined to my room.
Certain pains have hugged me tightly,
And those pains are not letting me go….
I too want to free myself from their clutches.
Some unknown strength has hold me rigidly,
And that strength is not setting me free…..
Had I forgotten you,
Life would have a different meaning.
I never moved on.
I had many choices,
But I chose to hold on.
I clinched to your memories,
I have no alternative.
Though, I know …..
Things are not the same now,
Yet I keep on struggling to keep the things as they were yesterday.
Yet I am living.
Perhaps, for an unknown cause!
Now, my only hope is…
YOU will surely come…
And YOU and only YOU will set me free …..
From the grasp of his cruel memories.
