The Sore Thoughts

It has been long since you are away,
Ages it seem,I have been left alone.
Left alone with the worldly world crowd,
Which asks me countless questions,
with legion of piercing shards
slicing my soul and then the world vanishes.
The universe wants to suck me in ,in its black hole,
Or is it me who wants to be lost?
A hope that lingers,once I am adrift in the vacuum
You will come back searching.
Is it my soma that longs for you?
Or I am just left as a carcass wanting decent burial?
Will you come and lit the pyre only?
Or you will come back to quench my thirst?
Waiting for your retort and the smile.
Will an acknowledgement to my existence
or a momentary thought will suffice!
that remains to be answered too.
