Separate from the sun and the stars,
There seems to be an angel afloat and afar
Igniting in the flicker of burning desires,
Embers soaring up and away to the sky and higher.
Succumbing to the inner turmoil
Heart beats turn mechanical
There’s no more desire to see the sun
Why does death suddenly feel so magical?
Here’s to the craze,
That hides behind the haze.
The beautiful smiles that cover your heart,
Become memories that seem too far apart.
Happiness is but a broken promise
Dangling loosely from a fragile thread
Despair lingered between the invisible gaps
And now it’s broken, lying dead.
All you will have when you leave,
Is what you’ve been through
All the souls you’ve left to bereave
Without leaving behind any clues
A broken soul is locked inside
Under layers of opulence and fame
Suffocating from this worthless glitter
It’s struggling in this unfair game.
Broken and undone,
The unlucky one.
Haring the dim dark melodies,
Aching for a remedy.
Tangled up in white curtains
Occupying the centre stage
Flowers fall neatly on top
Locking him forever in his dark cage.

This poem was written as a tribute for Sushant Singh Rajput, who recently committed suicide, and also for all those people who fell into the depths of depression and sadly, couldn’t come out of it. I hope and pray everyone has some person in their life whom they can trust and share their feelings with.❤🙏
