Darling Melancholy

by samantakbhadra

Across the seas

Vision travelling

Reaching the horizon

Or so it seems…

Eyes dissolve into oblivion

Ebbing away… perfume of joy


Residue in my mind

Grey soul sees the discoloured world

Blinds for the sunlight

Caged darkness

Rotting mind


Filling the vacuum of melancholy

Omnipresent… lingering…

Mind.. an escapist…

In a far away land now
