Recluse

by Sheena Pillai Singh


In my pursuit
of glory,
success,
fame and bliss,
I saw
the path ahead
torn apart
by the darkest of
lies,
demons,
deception
and despair…
I realized
my old self
crumbling;
leaving a
shrewder me:
a loner by choice;
Yet I sensed      
traces of old self
raising alert
to hold the reins
of this intoxicating
path to glory…
before they swallow
those tiny bits
of my older self
proclaim me
a self-confessed RECLUSE...
