A world where shadows don’t belong

Today’s guest blogger is Kushal.

I’m swimming in the skies
skies burning all around
my world was on fire
the fire scalding me from the insides
I look around to find people and their own worlds
Their worlds where the skies weren’t burning,
I reach out my hand towards them,
But, my hands pass through them
My world is burning and I am alone
Is it me or is it everything else which is fake
So, I search around for my one and only companion
My companion, my shadow isn’t by my side
My world is burning, I must be dreaming
I must be dreaming nightmares
Nightmares which aren’t half horrific as the reality
The reality I have to wake up to
My world is burning, but it’s morning now
Morning where the nightmare ends and reality dawns
By dawn I wake up
my world still is burning, my shadow hasn’t returned
My world is burning, I now realise
I realise there is so much light and yet there’s no shadow
The shadow which left me, the evil shadow shall not come back
For this burning fire has cleansed my sins away
I smile to myself, my world is no longer burning
With my evil shadow gone, I have no one to hold me back
I embrace myself for now there are no restraints
A world with no holding back
My shadow was where all my sins housed themselves
My nightmare was the past
The fire is my present cleansing all my sins
And a new world shall present itself in the morning
The morning comes and I know
I know I shall not hold back my fire
I shill live where my shadow can’t come back
For all I know, I’ve cleansed myself, and I shall win, win,
And yeah, I’m Kushal from the secret city of Hyderabad, India (Pssst, keep in mind, It’s a secret!) I am a guy with a fair share of experiences in the Navy, and embarrassing myself in public! Well I started reading novels and curse myself for not doing so previously! I’m 20 and dream to spit over the Mt Everest and  make a snow man on each of the poles of the earth!
I started to blog pretty recently and blogging has actually created an interest in writing poems, the one above is the second poem by me!

I host guest blogger on my blog every other saturday, i.e. twice a month. For more information, see this page.
