She delved deep into the crevices of uncertainties
until she found herself
buried midst agonizing chronicles,
carrying the marks of a disturbed mind
which tore her soul
into infinite parts.
When destiny struck her hard,
she was left all alone with a sunken heart!
A numbing pain dragged her down
midst the black hole of drudgery.
She lost her soul's symphony
and spend hapless nights in agony.
When life gave her a lopsided grin,
her existence seemed to be
of a grotesque sin.
When the sudden convolutions waged a war,
she wanted to scream
but a sickening lump
stuck in her throat.
Those days, when sombre was her only friend,
every moment was a vicious apprehend.
Years rolled by and she kept losing herself
in the mire of a cryptic maze.
Her brain was dazed in a haze!
Dementia had left all her memories abrase;
life now was just a concoction of scars
