The unending shadow of loneliness,
Casted gloom on all the coming days.
She once loved laughter and celebrations
She was life of all swarms that happened.
Once she had preferred to live in her cocoon
Long time back as they say.
She was innocent, naïve
Totally unknown to worldly ways.
She would see people overlooking her.
She changed herself, perked herself a bit,
With her vibrant polished looks every corner was lit.
She soaked herself in unwavering adulation
But yet mental peace and content she did not achieve
She started searching for love which would be hers steadfast
She chose love for now to settle in the family ties
Soon lost into family chirps and blues,
She got so busy that she forgot to pay her social dues.
She found herself forgotten and ignored,
She again missed all the lavish attention,
The way she got all the praise
and the way people were floored.
She was a failure in maintaining equilibrium
Between the social demands and family ties.
She had forgotten the facts of now and here
While telling herself all the sweet lies.
