Withered Away

Withered Away

A Poem by Shreyas Tripathy

I slowly withered away, with each tear
as the pages of our story turned to ash
on the inside and the outside, burning
out of shape now my heart, seared ...

I slowly withered away, in loneliness
as the silence around me grew louder
the sobs turned to screams, echoed
you couldn't hear me, as I had feared ...

I slowly withered away, with each step
as I walked towards the "home sweet home"
only, now there were bitter memories
all over the walls and the ceiling, smeared ...

I slowly withered away,
as there was nothing left to lose
having lost you, I will never forget
the smile that I so ... endeared
