MY CONTROVERSIAL STEPS by Suchismita Ghoshal

My controversial steps

Towards my arrogant life

Brought the broken pieces

Of tarnished confetti.

Assumptions go wrong,

Predictions turn extremely faulty,

Voids seen in every turn I take

And loud screams make everything hazy.

Pronunciations are unclear

When I try to call out "L-I-F-E".

Have I ever heard the reverberation

Of agonizing remnants and unrequited love?

Days are whooshing for a pathetic end

Where monday blues no more cry

For the sycophant week days attached.

My head sunk in between my knees,

And I sit in a narrow corner of my murky room.

Howling from time to time

Will not thin the layers of grief

And I won't ever stop repenting

My controversial steps.
