I wrote this poem when i was 17 and in boarding school. I hated the routine of getting up at five in the morning and going to sleep at ten, The sheer monotany of life for two whole years almost drove me mad. I had to pretend to be someone else everyday for wrting poetry and that too in english was considered pretty wierd. Could you believe i hid my ability to speak english well and feigned an atrocious accent to fit in with the crowd. Each day was a farce but then so often life in the real world is exactly that.

All the time I failed to see,

what was lying in the deep,

peering out infront of me,

darkness was all I could see.

Making out inscribtions on the walls,

in the tombs and in the halls,

of my mind, I could not breath

darkness was all I could see.

Searching for some peace of mind,

I roamed the caverns of my soul,

looking for some staunch support,

i could hardly stay afloat,

I tried my best to run and flee,

but darkness was all i could see.

In my grief and in my pain,

I searched for hope but invain,

I tried my best to make ends meet,

but I could not achieve this feat.

Atlast I yelled "JUST LET ME BE! "

DARKNESS IS ALL I CAN SEE!
