Poem · Prompts · Writing Challenge




Trapped in the clutches
Of wrong desires
I got stuck, neck deep,
In my own lies…
But you didn’t stop me,
You didn’t hold me back,
Instead you encouraged me,
Pushing me further,
Deep, towards this dark path…

But, now when I look back,
I realize,
I have nothing left behind…
And, I really don’t know
How to get back…

      1. Ya, had taken a break… I am doing good.. How are you doing..Shall hop over to your blog soon…Currently just catching up with what I have been missing … 🙂
        Thank you 🙂


    1. Hi Paula..Hope you had a great trip.. Yes, I couldn’t publish much as I am suffering from frozen shoulder. So currently staying away from doing any sort of typing. Will be back next week, hopefully 🙂
      Thanks Paula 🙂


      1. I would ask you how you got your frozen shoulder, but I don’t want you to type. Do what feels best for you until the pain goes away, and if possible keep it covered and far from air cons.

      2. True Paula. The doc here told me, that frozen shoulder is common for software professionals (mainly due to long hours of working which leads to straining of neck and shoulder muscles and also wrong posture) ….

  2. Wonderful

    By the way
    There is always a way
    You just have to look for it
    If at all if going back to what it is
    Is what you desire you will get there
    Whatever it takes you will always get there
