Voices in my head



These are just some voices
I keep telling myself
Time and again
Through the pain

They fiddle with my thoughts
Making me cringe with fear
Shattering the hopes
Taking me in ropes
But, I keep on believing, These are just some voices

I try to defy the odds
Fighting with enormous intensity
May be, I try too hard
May be, I should just let it be
After all, these are just some voices

I open my diary
And start writing a poem
But words fail every time
Every time emotions overwhelm me
Still, I soothe myself, these are just some voices

I switch on my music player
Trying to sleep it off
Volume goes higher
The song starts screaming
Voices fighting Voices, but it doesn’t last long

I shut my eyes as hard as I can
Pulling them inwards
I start seeing colours, and the light
Voices fade away for a second
Then, from the distance, I hear them again

I’m lost.
I feel helpless.
I wish I could run away.
Damn the voices, let’s just say.
I keep on fighting.
I don't know why, but I’ve always been.

These are just some voices
I keep telling myself
Time and again
Through the pain

You only told me that these are just voices Adii. And to let them fade in the background while we live our life. They may be there for a long time, but let them just be there. Don't let them overwhelm you. Friends are always around to subdue these voices, and even if they aren't there for a while, you're stronger than you know Ahaaa...ditya
