Starlit scarlet shined in my teary eye
As in darkness, I fell apart.
I helplessly watched my hope die
While fear impaled the blooming dreams in my heart.

Others saw me as a delusional dreamer in the dark
& to them, I was the unwanted enigma.
They ignored my soul’s symphonic spark
So I quietly carried my social stigma.

Like a Rubik’s cube, I was a beautiful mess
& the complex algorithm of my life none could understand.
Feeling worthless I carried my stress that I couldn’t express
Until you entered my life & gently held my hand.

The autumn breeze gently perfumed the air
While under the shade of a tulip tree, one day we met.
The blossoms glided like snow, upon your jet black hair
As you said things to me, that I will never forget.

In terror, my helpless heart used to shrink
While others’ stripped my confidence from pole to pole.
Yet you told me not to care about what others think
As with your unconditional love, you healed my aching soul.

Having lost everything in life, insecurities slithered underneath my skin
But you came as a blessing from high heavens above.
By losing your heart to my rhymes you
immortalized my solitary
& I felt worthy… felt worthy of your divine love.

Note: Heard the song Creep by Radiohead? Well that’s how I felt for a long duration of my life, I’ve tried to fit-in & be accepted by people around me but I terribly failed in that… I was a cynical scoundrel (perhaps still am to some extent), but regardless of my darkness when I started this blog you embraced me with your love & understanding. I may not be able to express the true extent of love for my followers but hope understand how grateful I really am , towards you all. Through this poem I also want to express is that everyone is worthy of something special like this & those who believe in your goodness would support you even when you feel lost in your worst condition.

  2. Sidharth, this is a truly beautiful poem…very eloquent! The poem about stars is also lovely. You are such a talented writer and have a beautiful soul.

    I think many of us who are blogging have found it to be a godsend in these isolating and unsettling days of the caronavirus.

  3. There is a phase of life that not all have the chance to go through. When the hopes are dead and helps are lost. To put it to words is a task, and you did a great job at that. And amidst of all that, to meet someone who assures us to hold our hand and tread on together is really no less than a blessing!! I am glad that you were bestowed with the same.πŸ’«βœ¨

    The Rubik’s cube metaphor was awesome.😍

    1. Not met my dream girl, so it’s not in that context lol. It’s more like a gratitude that I have for my followers who supported me despite my strange inclination towards darkness. It’s followers and fellow bloggers like you who make me feel like someone more than I could ever have been, really. Thank you for your readership and support πŸ™πŸ˜
