I was lying there. Still. Lifeless. Numb….yet breathing.

With a body, curled up…. curled up like a fetus, waiting for light to dawn upon her untouched body.

But….with a body, cold…. cold as a dead and stale corpse, waiting for the ferocious hungry beasts to take away what death left behind.

With eyes, wide and open…. wide and open as they tried to make sense of the warm whispers in my ear, prophesying a life longer than I would want.

With a brow, frowned…. frowned to greet the thought of filling my lungs with the poisoned air…. poisoned with crippling regrets.

I was tired. Exhausted.

My eyelids felt heavy, like they weighed pounds. So, I allowed them to fall and shut the world away…. for…. I wanted to explore my world, the realm within.

But alas, torment doomed over my joy.

I found myself standing in a cage of glass, a cage that I built for myself over these years of agony….

Within no time, I was out of breath.

I was helpless, running my hands over the four glass walls.

I would have cried for help…. but the dark is cursed to be deaf.

I would have broken the glass…. but I crafted it to be unparalleled.

My lungs ached, I was choking….my body lost its power and my heart lost its hope. I surrendered to the fate that I chose for myself.

I was lying there. Still. Lifeless. Numb….yet breathing…. for…. I learnt to breathe in, on my emptiness.

      1. I am so glad to say that I have been fortunate enough to be able to find that thing. But sometimes, it’s not what you’re doing, it’s just the way you are being treated by the people around 😞
        Thank you so much. You too, wishing you all the luck in life 😊

      2. Just remember that no one will be miserable for you so why make people affect your choices then? How they treat you is about them not you but you can choose yourself and your dreams 😊

      3. I agree! Thank you so much for the Lovely words huguette. I genuinely needed them this morning. 😊
        Very true! We shouldn’t let the people around us affect our mind space. A boundary has to be drawn.😊
        Have a great day ahead ☺️

      4. You must always remind yourself about this like constantly! If God couldn’t satisfy all people, why should you?
        Your life, your rules, as long as you’re not hurting anyone
        Have a great day too 😊😊

      5. Absolutely correct! We should not spend our lives, trying to make everyone happy. Rather, if we just try to keep ourselves satisfied and fulfilled, we may actually end up adding a spark of positivity in someone else’s lifeπŸ˜ƒ
        Very true!☺️
