Calling it Quits…

Her smile dried long back
And Innocence left way behind
Emotions were all forged when
Life lost its essence in its foray
Silence started screaming for a life

No words no acts no people
Could give solace to her soul
Loneliness had built a castle of its own
She steered through the darkness
In search for an armistice

When life asked for a narration
Her heart had no words
Embarrassment for the choices made
Regret for the life lived
But love for the people she met
Whose remembrance haunted her
Time and again

There she stood now
With a knife in her hand
Pain in her mind, doughty eyes
For she could bear no more
Masochism wasn’t a relief
She yearned for the closure

Her eyes cried for help
For this pain to end
For her broken heart to be one
It remained a forlorn dream
Decided to extend her hand
Wanted to reach out to me
I didnt want to

With one slit blood dripped down her fist
She looked right at me
Calling my name again and again
I wished her to go away
Leave me alone, I cried
Didn’t deter her will,
She didn’t stop, seemed fearless

Sudden silence embraced the room
There she was on the floor
Don’t blame me, I had warned
Then why she laid cursing me
Through the pieces on the floor
I don’t need the girl in the mirror
Not anymore in my life
I won’t have one now
Just called it quits
