My existence

Meera Mere

Smiles fracture through worn skin,

Suffering silently, absolving of sin.

Each day, I curse my existence in fleeting flashes,

Gathering the shards scattered in life's mazes.


I feign emotions, my heart a puppeteer,

Burning muscles tensed with fear.

In pursuit of reality, my heart tarnished,

Living in a world my soul has banished.


In echoes of the past, innocence taunts,

A face once adorned with genuine joy haunts.

I've misplaced the art of infectious smiles,

A life bizarre, a chapter unforeseen by miles.


Yet, in a quiet corner, no retreat in sight,

The loquacious tongue silenced in the fight.

Solace claims its space in profound quiet,

Gratitude morphs into resilient defiance.


As I seek the truths life tightly clasps,

The charm of imagination in the shadows gasp.

For in this journey with no reverse track,

Words falter, and imagination's allure turns black.
