That Familiar Feeling

by Debasmita Haldar
(kolkata, India)


It’s as if I’m in an abyss.
And I want to lie still.
I’m in no hurry to be discovered.
I want it to extort from me, my passion.
Every little remains.

I can imagine.
The darkness, the monotony of the nothingness;
Frightful. Pleasant.
I can feel the numbness in my bones.
I can hear my thoughts jostling to make their way out.
Out in search of purpose.
I let them go.
And I feel relieved.

I still don’t want to move.
I still want to lay low and let the abyss devour me
While I try to breathe in the beauty of all of it.
I’m in the abyss.
I’m not even there.
