It has been 16 years of our relationship-you and me. 16 years of compromising-fighting, debating and then finding that nothing can be done. 16 years are nothing petite – I have known you better each minute, each second, but still- I don’t understand you, neither I care to.
Each moment passes like an year.
It is you who holds my hand all the day and you who envelopes me all long the night-only you. My sight, my feelings, my aura -everything is yours by mandate – every known and unknown.
I won’t lie – I want to flee away from you – so

mewhere really far…but my destiny binds me. Where ever I go, I find you.
No-it isn’t love. It never will be.
They say you are my destiny, thus I have tried to be devoted to you, but never could.
No one can, no one will.
How can anyone, how can I? It’s you who eats my soul all the day and curses my dreams each night…you have taken my everything away from me – even my shadow……

I want to be free-can’t you get this? 16 years of our relationship, and you took away my everything – and I got simply nothing. My each breath struggles to be free; my each drop of blood yearns…
I have spent my nights crying in a nutshell and my days wearing a disguise of life. Why should I carry on? Why?
I didn’t choose you. What right do you have to rule on my life?
No, I am ending this finally- I am ending your unobstructed glory. I know, it will pain a lot, but I don’t care.
Some flashing strokes of light are knocking my door.

Yes, I am getting my colorful world back. I am getting my eyes back! Our 16 years of relation is going to end.
Yes, this is happening…finally, end of your tyranny.
Finally- after 16 years…
Adios darkness, I am engaging with colors…
I can see everything…i can see light!
Your rule ends…happy demise…

    I was convinced this was a bad relationship but instead it was about overcoming a physical limitation. Very good.

    Itttttttttt wasssssssss Outstandingggggggggggggggggggg Snehal… “I got back my eyes…” was the sentence where my breaths were paused for a while… :O Aaaaahhhh… no words to explain.. but lots of thoughts n questions are swirling in mind… if you don’t mind plz answer them…

    • Snehal Sahay says:

      That was indeed a compliment, thanks!
      And yes, why not…I would love to answer your questions if I have the answers… 😀

      • Pratiksha says:

        now that you ve accepted to answer, here goes the list of questions 😉

        is it just a poetry or someone’s bitter reality…?? who’z the Inspiration?

        i felt as if words have come from your heart… so real so true… the words portray the true pain of someone who faced 16 yrs of darkness n it’s not an easy task to explain the pain of darkness….
        Long back one of my teacher said, you can explain everything in world only if you are able to explain colors to a person who can not see… reading “demise of darkness” made me recall that statement…which is so true yet so difficult

        • Snehal Sahay says:

          It’s just a piece of work and also bitter reality of every one’s life… the world I have seen…me and every soul is the inspiration.

          As for me, I think world’s worst impairment would be inability to see, and I have always tried to feel that pain. But I don’t believe my portrayal to be perfect, no one can understand the pain of impairment left the impaired himself….
          “…you can explain anything in the world if you are able to explain colors to a person who can’t see…”
          I cant be the genius depicted above…that must be god.

        • Snehal Sahay says:

          Well, I don’t really know if this is really what a person feels in a situation as such, only a person who has gone through it can tell. It was just an imaginative pondering, nothing else for sure..empathy and a li’ll bit more. 🙂

Wanna pay me back? Sorry, no cash or credit allowed, we only except words here.... :P
