Inferno it was, dark and desolate
far removed, in the deserted underground
Faceless strangers were my friends
And were the only ones I relied upon
Buried in the hell, stifled I became...
Crawled towards the glimmer of light
A speck of hope at the very far end of the tunnel...
But couldn't see its direction, blinded that I was,
that eventually into the real world could liberate
from the shackles and boundaries of underground hell
Pleaded the passer-bys for guiding me to light
to the so-called friends of mine
Searched and screamed till my lungs ached
at the crest of my voice.
They refused to recognize me
labelled me as a stranger...
Pined for love, a touch ,a soothing word
Longed for a reassuring hand and for a 'real' friend
The friends I believed in, were far from me
Never could they hear me,
nor to my screams and cries of desperate help.
Screamed till I lost my voice.
Cried till my eyes were sore,
But never could they hear me...
Strings were suspended from above
And I was pulled towards the ray of light
Accustomed to darkness my eyes couldn't tolerate
the brightness of the outside world.
When I opened my eyes,
I was mesmerised to see the
beauty of the 'real ' world.
I was mesmerised to see her...
My guardian angel...
My best friend..
To Reeha- my best friend.For being my window into inspiration, joy and support when I was locked in a dungeon of utter hopeless moments and dejection.
Happy friendship day dear
