Crying Out Loud

Dhruv Sharma 2004 (Jaippur)

Running on no sleep,
Probably losing my mind,
It’s thinking too deep,
That takes me into territories undefined!

My world’s come crashing down,
Anxiety at its peak,
There is no one around,
And insomnia continues its streak!

Thinking about what could have been,
Feeling very queasy,
Hoping someday I will grin,
When will life get a little bit easy!

    That’s a very true poem. I can relate to a lot of what you have written, since I was in the same place not too long ago. It’ll get better. :)
