Cuz He Finally Left

He rose like tornado, struggling to liberate himself from the darkness, yearning to break free from the confinement. But the firmly shut drapes stood there stubbornly like a curfew, restricting all his movements. Persistently stinging from behind the drapes, this time he was determined to see the light of the day… and so he did. The drapes finally gave in and he eagerly stepped outside, taking its own sweet course, like a wild flowing river.

Disturbed, I asked him "What are you doing here? Weren't you supposed to be hiding?"

He said "Yeah, you wish!"

He smiled back at me viciously. A smile that visibly conveyed every bit of sadistic pleasure he drew from the perfectly crafted revenge he took, for all the times when I suppressed him and smothered him to keep him away from the public view. Today, he stood there basking in the limelight that he deserved.

He was finally free. Merrily, he rolled down my cheek and willingly settled on my palm. And for a change, I did not have the heart to stop him. Not anymore. I let go and went with the flow.

After all the fights which I won, the one I lost made me feel better than ever and I wondered why I had bottled it up all inside. But no more, cuz I am myself again. And I am better, cuz he finally left.

crying really helps
i know :)
very well written.
we brave the world but braving ourselves is kinda foolish..knowing well we are hurting, the fight to deny ourselves that confession is pointless.sooner or later it will flow out either as emotion or a complete lack of emotion.
the former is anyday better :)

*applause*

Wow!! I love this post! This is brillianto! :)

July 31, 2008 at 2:01 AM  

It is strange how a tear can make us feel so heavy in the heart..The way it threatens to escape and the way we struggle to stop it is beautifully portrayed..Loved it..

Glad to know you are yourself... Good riddance, I say :-)

Sometimes crying really helps more than holding tears back. And after that one tear you feel relieved and calm. And thats how it is supposed to be :)
