a poem by Maryse Saldanha

Papers piled up
So many mails to be read
The work day has begun
Now all run till it ends
I sit at my desk
But heres not my mind
My mind wanders far
To a faraway land

A land so different
Another world it seems
Where I all alone
Thoughts and emotions for company
In them now I drown
Feeling so lost and lonely
Going down and down
To the bottom of the sea

My mind chaos
Clearly think cannot I
What be it what went wrong?
Why does it make me sad?
Around the dark of the sea
All by myself am I
No laughter or tears
Dreadful silence surrounds
