“At one magical instant in your early childhood, the page of a book—that string of confused, alien ciphers—shivered into meaning. Words spoke to you, gave up their secrets; at that moment, whole universes opened. You became, irrevocably, a reader.” –Alberto Manguel

Darkness is all I can see;
in and all around me,
as I open my eyes there is nothing to find;
as I close it, all I am is –blind.

All I can feel is to cry for all my confessions;
with bloodshot eyes I look for all my lost passions,
for there is no more to give away;
I am a puppet of skin no meaning left to pray.

Numb is all I can feel even when I fall;
all I look like is like a picture on the wall,
lost in darkness, crawling towards light –so weak;
screaming all my sorrows out, dragged to black.

Tears don’t fall, am choked within;
looks like am paying for all my sin(s),
counting my days left to pass;
closing my eyes, putting my fingers cross(ed).

What do I do, where do I go?
darkness around passes by so slow;
looks like it will take lifetime to fade;
and I long for light –so bad.

I crawl every single inch towards light;
so weak but am trying to fight,
I wish I could get a chance to sneak;
but the shades of dark drag me to black.
