Poetry VII — I wish

There were times when I was told not to cry

But I wished someone to wipe off my tearsΒ 

There were times when I was scared to speak

But I wished someone to hear my voice

There were times when I hid my pain 

But I wished someone to heal my wound

Yes, those were the times when I used pen and paper

Because I couldn’t pull a trigger

_

Well, Today I wish I could go back and speak to myself , that 

I was just lonely but not alone 

I was just in a different route but not wrong

Yeah, I wish I could go back and collect my tears 

Because I was too precious to cry…

— Aanchal Parmar

  13. “… I was just lonely, but not alone.” There is an ocean between those two realities, but if we can bridge them, there is no sea that we cannot sail…

    1. I agree.πŸ™Œ
      There’s a huge difference between being lonely and being alone, but many a times we misunderstand our situation and end up giving up. So, its basicslly on us how we take up the things…..
      Putting it together we may be lonely at times but it’s hard to say we are alone cuz there’s always a desire inside which is holding us strong. So yeah, we are not alone because our inner conscious is there with us. (at least there’s a little sparkle inside even at the hardest of times )

    Sometimes in this tough world of hardship we have to be our own
