I thought everything was perfect until it began…
A battle within the chambers of my own soul….
I felt lonely in midst of a crowd,
No matter how many people were around;
It was a ghost all set to steal everything I had,
Little did i know it was locked within the walls of my own mind;
The only thing that comforted me was loneliness,
and the only thing that surrounded me was darkness;
I found it hard to look into the mirror,
and every thought seemed to be a bullet set for murder;
It was the realization that sank in as i lay awake at 2am,
that i was losing pieces of myself everyday..
I reached out for help which was never there,
for all i needed was love,affection and care…
