My Poem “shadow” Narrates About the Darkness That Is Somewhere Buried Inside the Human Mind and About Our Fears .

Jusmi is an English teacher. Obtained her Masters in English literature from Gauhati University India shares an immense love for writing.

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 !!
