Eyes had turned hollow

All glitter had vanished

Held neither curiosity

Nor iota of hope


Shadows subdued the sun

Tears warmed his laps

He felt guilty

And dirty



Strain and drain seeped

Into his flesh and bones

Reducing him into a corpse


He wished to burn all memories

Memories of his fertile mind

Those he hoped would flower

Now they hid behind his eyelids


He wished to let go of all the pain

Wished it to be so easy

Like opening eyes

But it wasn’t


Eyes shut, he conjured the image

Its presence wouldn’t fail him

Had never failed him

It steadied his senses


He recalled the image

It noticed him




Sound were soft




Lulled him into security

    1. Trying to make an effort of highlighting what goes in the mind of a person struggling with some kind of mental disorder. It is often lonely, scary and intense experience. In most cases, such individuals create imaginary friends through objects or people to feel centered.


      1. Good subject matter, but the concept was lost by me when I read the poem. It might help in a future to treat the imaginary character as if it is a real character to be disclosed as fake in the last stanza or something like that. The character as of right now exist in the head than it does conveyed on paper. Keep writing!

      2. I felt the loneliness and fear coming through. And how many go to a safe place in their minds in order to feel calm and security. I wanted to thank you for stopping by and reading my post, Just Friends. I appreciate it.
