Left Alone

I wrote this piece almost 5 years back November 17, 2004 to be precise, the time when I actually realized I can write, I somewhat feel like this even now, do leave your comments

Left Alone

I am in the middle of the ocean

Left alone- nowhere to go

Sky is clouded- I can’t see stars

I couldn’t find my way home


I see no star, no light, no hope

To guide me out of this lonely sea


I’ve lost all my gadgets

I couldn’t find the distance

I’m left with only one piece of cloth


Is it a night?

Or a day turned dark

I’m struggling for life

Amongst approaching shark

I’m fighting hard


I’ve lost sight to time, day and date

Month and year I’m stranded all alone

I’m in the middle of the ocean

Left alone- nowhere to go

Melancholic but sums up the mood well. I hope the protagonist survived and found a lot of lights. :D
