Worst Days Ever

Reasons and explanations, all seem to have ceased.
Each day brought a new life once, all it brings now is disease.
Is it just me who suffers, or is it the whole world?
Have I gone mad, or is universe really in a whirl?
Are these problems that spawned still in their teens?
Or Could these be the worst days I have ever seen?

Each night I sleep, I pray for better tomorrow.
But morning only brings fresh stink of sorrow.
Workplace seems to be nothing more than a joke.
They call me names, and then blame me for being provoked.
Am I an employee to them, or am I a living machine?
Could these be the worst days I have ever seen?

Broken are those strings that we yesterday loomed.
Consumed by these times of havoc and doom.
We walk two different paths that would never meet,
One leads to peace and salvation, the other to greed.
The rare times we talk over phone, we end up in screams.
Could these be the worst days I have ever seen?

A bunch of best friends, thats what we were.
How it all fell apart, now none can gather.
Our hearts were filled with love for each other so true
Then how could we end up as Group one and Group two?
She blames him for his rudeness, he blames her for being mean.
Could these be the worst days I have ever seen?

Is there an end to these days, or are they here to stay?
Would I die in my cube believing I would be rewarded one day?
Can we tie the broken threads we have into another knot?
Would we friends write one story again from our randomly connected plots?
All I am left with now is hope that these days would end soon.
Or a wish to sleep and never wake up to see the burning gloom.

Mathur .. u have created really a awesome piece of poetry .. I go for an encore ...write some more :)

Sigh! Such a brilliant piece this is Vaibhav. I know where it stems out of, sadly.

But very well put, eloquently into words. I used to always accuse language of being inadequate, never knew it could speak emotions so well.

Keep writing. That's the only salvation from all that be. Would love to read more...

Cheers!

Absolutely WOW !! Appreciate the flow of thought, the use of words, the agony behind writing this one, Mathur !

The next one I would want to see is the changing situation maybe 6 months down the line... I just hope you're forced to express a different idea :)

Cheers mate, and keep writing !
Samit.
