Marooned - By Shamika Shabnam


It seemed as if yesterday I was high up on cloud nine
The swift breeze of bliss and contentment was wafting all over me,
Like a rapid, galloping horse
The aura of ecstasy was running in every single unit of my body,
I had an astounding sensation that,
there wasn't a second individual with such a splendid lifestyle as mine.

But every captivating dream is followed by a ghastly nightmare
Out of the blue, I found myself marooned in a trapped location
Like a forsaken, abandoned youngster
Stranded in an anonymous island
I had no acquaintances with whom I can chatter merrily
I constantly kept on creating catchy quotes in my constructive mind,
cause I lacked a companion
With whom I can communicate effectively.

The awareness of being marooned was as anguishing and suffocating;
As a helpless sparrow, trapped inside a gloomy cage
The sparrow is a feeble victim,
The cage is its predator
I am a feeble victim,
The trapped location around me is my predator
Who has marooned me to death.

Marooned, marooned, marooned........
