I paved my way with tears and a smile
Tears for every moment I had longed for the happy moments past,
And a last smile to my true and only friend for the past months,
‘Close your eyes,’ It said,
‘For you have already witnessed the ugliness,
Enough to make you miss the beauty you have known.
Goodbye. You can let me go now.’
And so I did.
There was no abyss to think of, no fear to indulge.
The icy cold water of winter
That had been lingering beneath all along,
Calling me and pleading with me at times,
Pushing me away and warning me at some others,
Finally welcomed me in its warm embrace.
Peace was nowhere to be seen.
But there were no more tears to hide, no more smile to plaster.
My last selfish act
That would lead me to the perpetual state of selflessness.
