i extricated myself from the outside

entombed in my own dark and gloomy world

chained in the dungeon of depression

gagged by the ropes of self-reservation

my eyes are blinfolded by deception

unable to see the reality of things

i welcomed the utter silence

oblivious of the noise around

with only shadows for company

and in my desolate world

thorns of poignancy embedded my throne

in my head is a crown

jeweled with uncertainty and self-doubt

and i am always trying to get the upperhand

trying to control my sick personality

trying to rule over the shadows and images in my mind

plunge into the abyss of insecurity

with nothing to grab on

nowhere to go

but deeper into the unknown…..
