Resting my head on my wrist,
I tried to travel through the timeline of thoughts.
I reached the dark and gloomy lanes of my distant past.
I searched for the happy days that I had vowed.
The occasions I lived for.
But, they weren’t visible anywhere.
The more I ventured into.
The more painful it was.
I saw the days when I could have been much more fulfilling.
I tried to move forward to something bright.
But, a cold hand tapping on my shoulder.
I turned around and saw a shadow.
He said, “ Pal you need to make a move”.
I refused but he pulled my hand and pushed me.
Your past is too dark he said and vanished.
I woke up with a start to check if he was there.
But, no he had vanished and now I knew,
He would be playing on my damn mind often !!
