Teach Me, How To Live..

Teach Me, How To Live..

Teach me, how to live

When there's a dagger stuck in the heart,

Breathing, walking, performing the motions

in this drama of life

With plastered smiles and glazed eyes

drifting along in a daze

And living on the cusp,

of this world

and the one beyond....

Teach me, how to live

when grief has become breath

the very being of existence

as well as its bane

defining you, possessing you

like a Siamese twin, conjoined for life,

the agony unseen, unperceivable

and yet,

perpetually palpable...

Teach me, how to live

when the demons of anguish and despair

and regret and rage,

And a million others of their ilk

incessantly crawl about

the labyrinths of mind

devouring and relishing, the residual crumbs

of everything positive...

Teach me, how to live

when words of empathy

are laced with judgement.

And eyes that seek to solace

are tinged with censure

When shards of shattered confidence impale

and the moorings that anchored

are all but lost....

O sliver of my heart

Teach me, how to live

without you........
