The Last Step

I’ve reached the zenith… am standing on the edge of the journey called ‘love’…
Having left my world behind……
Now I witness your world that lies at my feet…

Many must have been here, enjoying the ecstatic view of your world…..
And yet, a handful have survived to share the experience…..

As I look back at the obliterated childhood memories,
I see a wreath of hugs and cuddles…..of smiles and tears….
and an incessant guidance from people who used to ‘care’……

The same faces that scowled at my actions, misinterpreted my feelings,
misjudged my intentions and thus condemning me, drove me to this edge…..

As I stand here….a loner….a destitute,
Your world, I realize, reflects my inner frustration….

Bit by bit,
a paradox flusters my mind….

In the End,
the dilemma gets the upper hand….

And I,
take the last step………
