Lost!!

I woke up in the morning

Choked and frozen

Trying to feel the soul

I touched the face

I know this feel

It’s familiar and known 

Not the first time I am meeting this person

But Do I really know…

Who is she???

Lost in these thoughts 

I get up from the bed

Smile-Smile and welcome

A new day in my life

But is it a new day?

Captivated in thoughts

How can somebody think??

Choked inside

How can one breathe??

The day passes

And so my life

Engrossed in weird dreams

I sleep again

The faces I see

Do I really know them?

In search of peace

The journeys continues..

Days becomes months

And months into years..

I keep walking

Like a dead soul

On a painful road

The destiny is not destined

It’s just a long way

Where I am already lost 

As early as I started to walk

Lost in my thoughts

I try to think again….

I woke up in the morning

Merely to get up again…
