Bottomless Abyss - Kaleidoscope of My Life
When you have friends that match your weirdness and eccentricities, random poetry challenges are born. This poem was composed as a response to a friend’s “brainwave”. So the challenge was to compose a poem starting with “you tell me that I’m hopeless” and end it with “how much I liked to breathe”. Here’s what my “brainwave” conceived! You tell me that I’m hopeless… But to me, life hasn’t been fair yet I have tried to smile, Baring the burnt roads I have walked thousands of miles Surviving places so dark Where death slowly sinks its teeth I have welcomed the – bottomless abyss Before I finally remembered how much I liked to breathe… -Ashwini Nawathe PS: The poem turned out to be surprisingly good, didn’t it! © 2019 Ashwini Nawathe, Kaleidoscope of My Life All Rights Reserved Related
