Running away..
That is what I've always been doing. Running from every possible thing, from everyone who try to come close to me, to love me.
I find comfort in the dark..the only place I rest in. Hiding under the covers that bind me, that dig into my skin..leaving me in a condition to not feel again. I feel numb. The dark is where I dwell. It gives me the courage to run again.
What is it that I'm scared of though?
That a gentle touch may bruise me.. That the warmth may burn me.. That the love will turn into hatred one day, and that I will lie hurt, in a position to not run again.
I'm afraid to face the reality. I suppress my heart from beating out loud. Scared to be held, but deep down I long to be loved.
Lying under the covers and crying my heart out..and when I wake up, I cannot face who I see in the mirror. 

I turn and run. 

Deep down, I just run from the person I am. Afraid I am, to love myself..
It's only in the dark, when my shadow lets me rest in peace.

Yes I'm back. Finally =) Hope you've all been good! 
And thanks a ton Rahul for the lovely post that left me smiling! :D

  10. You don't even want to know how similar my state is. You run away from yourself, think you can suceed in becoming somebody else, put up a smart facade, but it isn't really possible. Because we're better off being ourselves :)

  18. Scared to be held, but deep down I long to be loved.
    Loved the above words..
    Happens to me too often!
    then all that i need is to run away from rest of the world around me too.

  19. There's comfort in sitting in the rain too :)

  20. finally i am back too..!

    how have you been?
    well i agree with crsytal , i am on the treading the same path but i guess i will dig a new trench and move out soon.
    Fear , insecurity , accept that LOVE and be ready for that TIME when it will vanish right before your eyes is TOUGH or id rather say is TOUGHEST , it is UNEXPECTED and UNCERTAIN that is the beauty of it. so don't run , maybe just walk because someone can catch up with you that way. :)

  21. Lovely as always...Welcome back...:))))

  22. Good to see you back. Was reading a few of the previous posts. It made me feel different!
