What I Lost Inside

By Avanthika Ann Mathews

I no longer ask questions

since my curiosity was replaced by suspicions.

I no longer cry for lost things

since my tears were covered by fake smiles

I no longer play hide and seek

since my innocence grew into ignorance.

I no longer say I miss them

since my concern turned into responsibility.

I no longer admire the beauty of rain

since my excitement grew into indifference.

I no longer believe in miracles

since my fantasies were erased by realities.

I’m wandering through

the streets of the amygdala

In search of my vanished feelings,

hoping to bring her back once again…
