My belongings..

A Poem by Penny
"

Something you can read after my death.

"
Come into my little room
A square cage, and solace too.
Made of walls lilac in colour-
So dark they seem to fall on me.

At once you see a broken bed-
Almost broken, like my future,
Still bearing the weight of,
A sleeping mind, a resting present.

Comfort is scattered there too,
In form of pillows, slightly wet.
Sometimes because of my drooling
And sometimes...

Oh! Save your head rising up from here,
A stone shelf juts out there,
Kept on it is a bottle of cologne
My love gifted me once-
Only to ask back for it.

Decorated there and downwards too,
Are pages torn and chewed-
the evidence of my insanity.
And below it, inside the closet
Are my friends waiting for you.

Yes, a big bunch of small books,
And papers in wrinkled look.
Some to be read, some to be written
Kept beside a clumsy mess, as if hidden.

A coffee mug, perhaps two.
Too many keyrings to view,
In different colours and shapes and sizes
With them lie my fun devices.

Move left, but not too far,
Hidden behind, a window pane ajar
You find a plastic in which-
Is a peach cold cream and a berry lipbalm
Keeping pain away, from my visage.

Crushed from there weight is a little tube
Sweet smelling antiseptic, seldom used.
And thus it tells you, at last
I wasn't numb after all.

Petty it didn't dissolve my pain,
The day I got lost and found no gain.
Where am I now- living or dead you ask?
Am I dead- I don't know, but I never lived a life for sure.

Very sad and depressing Penny, but mainly the end.
Sadly i also relate to the end part to.
I am truly sorry you feel like this.
You are a beautiful person, and I wish only for you to be happy.
Very emotional heartbreaking read.
Though its a good write as always.

Very well written. I feel the pain and loneliness in this. But a glimmer of hope lies in even asking if dead, giving us a view of life yet to be. I like it :)

Ahh! This is sad. Has a bit of the "Fight Club" mentality behind it of "you are not your possessions!" I don't know if that's the idea you were going for, but that's what I felt at the end. "I never lived a life for sure" is such a sad line, but it's so true for soooo many people. They just live in little boxes and collect useless things and then they die.
