To laugh, to cry or to whine,
The urge to “emote” is foreign to me.
I now wander in confined solitude-
With no hopes to step out – ever of it.

Doesn’t matter how I live,
Or How I wished to at one time!
And How I too had wanted to celebrate..
My special days, festivals and every other thing!!

My hurt, anguish and pain; words can not describe all.
Neither can they compensate-
The inheritance, possession and that could be!
Expectations dead, I stay mute;

‘Cause I am at a loss of Words..

    It is sad to hear the anguish in this, although beautiful too.

    It’s hard when you can’t give voice to your emotions.

    Nice One Shot, Olivia!

    I feel it, Liv… Hurt can really put us in that deep dark hole where words and everything else seems soooo far way…
    Painfully but so beautifully written, my dear… I could almost HEAR the pain in your words here…

    But know that you have friends who will always be there for ya…oki?
    Looooaaadsa love and hugs!!

    Like the sunrise,
    hopes and the will should arise,
    for sorrow is a journey,
    on which you can take no money,
    with all its holes and ruts,
    sorrow and all the hurts,
    which can be bountiful,
    life is still beautiful
