This post is in response to daily prompt : Incomplete
We were made for each other, soulmates and best of friends until the darkness engulfed my mind. You used to wrap your loving arms around my frightened soul and trudged through the rocky paths with me, in hope of better days yet to unfold. You gave me company and provided me with comfort and solace when the very essence of my being was torn asunder due to the unbearable weight of loneliness I had brought upon myself.
You were a portal to inaccessible lands where my wildest dreams became a reality. It was through the words inked on your skins, I learned to live mine as well as lived lives beyond my reach. Remember, I always judged your inner worth through your outward appearance. But every time I ventured beyond the cover you surprised me with new possibilities.
You were a blessing, now a curse. I let you beyond the walls I’d raised, gave you a special place in my heart. It was after all my fault, I became overly attached to you because you were my joy, my means of escape and every little things that kept my fragile mind together. I just couldn’t imagine a day without you.
You never failed to come for my rescue or quench my thirst for knowledge. However, too much of anything is not good. Maybe that’s the reason why my mind turned against you. It fettered my rational mind and pushed me into a vicious cycle.
Every time I sought your company, I paid an unbearable price – my sanity. The demented mind had its roots firm and fed on my fears, anxieties and apprehensions. The space between us grew and at the end, we bid good bye.
Ever since then, I’ve been living with a sense of voidness. An empty space which no other thing can fill up. It is a sort of a vacuum and every time I think about you, it leaves me breathless. You know why because you were my breath, my shelter, a safe haven in this big bad world and without you I’m incomplete.
Have a great day!
