Won’t be long..
Well, you might not be able to forget how your soul quivered, just before that last string snapped.
You might still remember how mercilessly you weren’t given an option to hold on.
That numbness wouldn’t start to feel unfamiliar for a long time, because that was one long freefall.
But soon there’d be something to break your fall.
Or you’d have learnt to find a way.
Maybe all those shattered pieces won’t return to make you feel like ‘yourself’.
But the light in you would shine through.
Those fragments that you left along the way, they’d have lit up and made this world a better place.
You’d be long gone, you’d have found home.
Or may be you’d have carried along pieces of you that started to shine.
You had held on to them and hung them over your head.
Then made a canopy of stars out of it.
After all, that string had to snap and that fall had to create a million fragments.
It’s alright, they will all light up just in time to look like stars. Watch out for those.
