My Real Mind

A piece of my mind

How Do You Carry On?

January6

Say my name again, speak up
Scream like I do, speak up!
Why have you fallen through
to the other side where it’s dark

Look at these tear drops
Running down my eyes
Falling onto your cheeks
Wont you still not speak

Why have you gone silent
Why wont you carry on?

I feel a hand on my shoulder
As if to restrain
And I break even more

I bend down
try to kiss your face
For now you lie silent
And smiling at the world

Or maybe just to me
Asking as if to carry on

And I try to hold you
As you lie on your bed
And I hear another voice
You cant speak to her anymore

For you have left the living
And must carry on
While she must do so too
But only in her world

Until it’s time
For her to join you

Well I just decided to try out something fun in life. I have random thoughts, wildly fluctuating like my mood. And in this mess, sometimes i end up writing meaningful stuff. I feel like sharing it with everyone sometimes, and so this Blog was a side-effect of it.

Professionally I am a software engineer. In another life I would like to be a writer. Currently I work for Amazon.com which helps promote laziness by letting you spend more time thinking and less time shopping.

If you like what you read or have similar thoughts, feel free to shoot me an email at pkarnany [at] gmail [dot] com. Who knows, we might have an interesting debate in store!
