An Unknown Laugh - Poem by Paras Saxena

this path leads home but I'm lost
I don't recognize this shaggy walk
infront, stands my own ghost
this ain't the person I loved to talk

these noises hurt my ears
do these symphonies reward me with tears
or these tears reward me with symphonies
and these pain sprinkled melodies

restlessness conquers my heart
try to control to break me in half
see the pain in my eyes? I fall apart
but still possess an unknown laugh

time heals body not the soul
love never transcends without leaving holes
history repeats but not the experience
to deepen or fill holes is the difference

I don't like this noise, this voice
I like this emptiness, this darkness
'cause eyes don't warn before-hand
to search a corner for tears to land

there's no hope to cling to
there's no place to return to
my eyes reveal it half
I hide the rest with an unknown laugh

I have no clue who I'm
I don't know where I'm
not me is what I've become
a real laugh is what don't come

'cause when it tries to appear
can't leave the past behind
when someone tries to get near
my clock by default gets rewind

I feel the wind on my wet cheek
when I walk with nothing to seek
the pieces reveal half
I hide the rest with an unknown laugh

it's that time when after a sour breakup, you have forced smile on your face and people can't recognize you in your new you.
