A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)

Coming Up For Air


That cloud burst.
Aeons worth of vagrant
Intangible, angst-ridden
Thoughts, condensed
On knots of pain.

The dam burst.
Brimming over,
Churning, pushing
Them angst-ridden emotions.

Washed away.
Fighting, to hold on.

Till I finally
Or did they?

Let go.


I did.
Rootless, wild
Thrashing, calming.

I let go.

And just like I knew.

I was finished…

  1. To finish, one needs to let go. Gulp in the air! 😉

  2. Before you began to finish the gasp
    Perhaps you needed to unpin the hasp
    Then let go
    And from that low
    Broke free from a cloying annoying clasp!

  3. Gasping big .. gulping big..makes lungs stronger. .

    And with strong big lungs we can puff out air to help someone.. …

  4. Every thing in the nature is following the rule of Recycling. We finish off to have a new start. We let it go because we want to create space for other things to come in and fill the vacuum. The journey never ends in reality!


  5. It takes a lot of courage to let go
    and simply go with the flow
    than clinging and unwilling to throw
    garbage collected from long ago

    I would have preferred i was renewed instead of i was finished, but like Shail would say, it is my perspective 🙂
