Blur and Chaos

Colors blur and I can’t make one out from other,

images pass through my mind of moments past,

words mix and all I can hear is madness.

I’m trying to think straight,

to see through all these blurry images,

to focus on one word, on one voice.

Hands shaking, head pounding, heart beating faster than ever,

everything so unstable, so fragile, so easily lost.

I need something to focus on,

something to hold on to,

something to pull me out of this blur and chaos.

P.S.-

      1. Really? I was never fond of circuits and stuff. In 4 years of engineering, I had only 1 backlog and it was this nasty guy! 😂 I had 10 days off for this exam, still I royally messed it up 😀

      23. Yes, not too strenuous. I messed it up partly because of the long holidays. I went home, I was at the hostel, and got distracted being home. And in the next sem, had DSP and one more exam on the same day. Fortunately cleared it 🙂

    It’s like being under water not being able to breathe, panic…grief and exhaustion taking over. Eyes opening and closing while colors flashing by when you see a hand reach into the water to pull you up. You grab the hand and inhale fresh air and see the face that pulled you up and that’s your organized chaos. To let the chaos take over for a while just to be able to be immune to the next chaotic episode that occurs isn’t a bad thing. Giving into the weakness to gain strength to see in the future. You penned this perfectly lovely, the perfect strength plus an extra heart can get one through the blur and chaos in life.♥️🌹
