The someone

If it were not for you, the someone- I would've been no one And you would have stayed, Until I decayed, And only then would peace have been made.

The Someone is a poem written by Sourodip Ghoshdastidar and shared with The Ugly Writers under the theme Infectious for the month of June

 

The Someone

 

As my hands shake,

And everything’s at stake,

Where have you been,

I ask someone,

I didn’t expect a reply,

For that someone,

I thought was not nearby

I now face a test,

For the someone,

I thought was at rest,

But no, it said,

I’ve been expecting you instead,

Why? I ask

It said, You now have a task

Quickly thinking, I raise my sword

Reveal thyself, or else…..you will never be restored!

But wait….calm down!

No scare tactics!

Or else I will show my antics!

Okay, seems reasonable, I say

Please reveal yourself! I pray!

Aaaaaaahhhhhhh!!!!!

….Pause of silence…….

I look in the mirror

I see my own figure

Is that me

Or is it you that I see

Think for yourself,

Young warrior!

Riddle me not, you you you………wait…

What shall I write?

My memories are blurry,

But I’m not sorry…

Cause I realize

If it were not for you, the someone-

I would’ve been no one

And you would have stayed,

Until I decayed,

And only then would peace have been made.
