Despondent short poem

Have you ever felt lost
lost beyond hope
beyond comprehension
beyond care
when you don’t want to be found
when hope becomes blasphemy
and something tells you
“this is how it will be, always”

Have you ever been in company
yet lonely
lonely as the oasis in desert
brimming with life
yet so out of place in desert,
lonely like an island,
lonely like a sheer cliff..
you talk, you laugh
but all is an aberration,
your mind wanders
setting its own course
through the myriad of memories,
not contemplating though
just reliving the agony
again and again..

Have you ever been with nature
yet incomplete,
when nothing seems to fill the void,
nothing carries the allure anymore,
with mind in state of exasperation
unknown anger brewing inside you,
and the wish to smoulder
everything in line of sight
and the erudition
that there is no deliverance
no escaping the wrath
an acquiescence of doom..
