Do you just wake up-
In the middle of night
About what are you exactly thinking
In a stream of thoughts
Just narrowing down
To a gigantic waterfall of uncertainty
Do you feel that anxiety-
That sweat dripping down your forehead
Ohh shutup…it’s not the summer!
It’s that twist in your stomach
When someone asks your last piece of brownie
But you have to smile
‘Yeah sure, why not!’
Do you feel like a lost puppy-
Swirling up and down on a roller coaster
Gasping for breath
Hearing the backseaters enjoying the ride
And being bewildered
Is my species not supposed to be here?
Do you feel love-
And still not feel love
Like that first drizzle of monsoon
Which always gets hashtagged as #FirstRain
And is not suppose to wet you
Just come by.
I know you do;
But do you know, you do?
