Fear

In the Nights dark and cold,
While the world silently sleeps,
I lie in darkness, 
screaming within..
afraid, 
not of nightmares,
but of desires and dreams..
screaming at me,
Urging me to grab on to their open arms,
While I,
chained to the world and duties,
lie helplessly twisting and turning,
watching 'em drift afar

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and for your kind words
I very much understand this poem that you have written
I have been on this journey
I started changing my life
by writing a list of what I desired in my life and then began
doing them
not without difficulty
but with great joy
for once I saw what I truly desired I was set free
and many times I had to begin again...I shall read more of your blog....keep dreaming...and you would be surprised sometimes it is the subtle changes in our lives that set us free...for one look for joy and beauty everyday
no matter what..in the simplest ray of sun on the floor to a beautiful blue sky...it lifts our duty and burdens
nice to have met you

I wish that happend to me more often. That is what being alive is, feeling the urges, our desires, our needs, when we long for them, is when we can start fullfiling them and live life with plenitud

meeta said...

@Mariana it happens to all of us..our actions, our thoughts are all driven by those longings and thoughts..the reason u write, the reason why i write & we read so many blogs & interact..is 'cu we are aware of our longings & are trying to reach 'em :)

nice one meeta..i think it's a balancing act duties and desires..but yes as Suz said living each day at it's merit ..in the moment...make life simple and joyous :)

Thanks Rahul, the problem with me is I so totally suck at doing the balancing act..if i'd been any good at it..I don't think this poem would have been in existence :)
