Let me be with you...

© Written by Tarang Sinha

Hugging myself tightly
I struggle to fight the pain
Melancholy possess my heart
And it shriveled with congestion
Clogged throat tries to swallow the hurt pride
But it's painful
A friendly voice echoes from within
And reassures
"Let me be with you...
I can't promise to ebb away your anguish
But I'll soak it and lighten your heart" it says
Finally, I keep my stubbornness aside
And I set that voice free....
It pricks my eyes and appears
And warm rivulet of tears keeps its words
Twinge in my heart melts away....slowly
