When you feel numb,

When everything inside you feels hollow,

When breathing becomes a little difficult,

When you have no sense of time,

When you loose your sanity,

When you try desperately to search for an answer, a hint - in reality or in dreams,

When you think nothing else can hurt you more,


You find a place

You need to check if there is a pain greater than what you are feeling right now

If something can hurt you more than how you are hurting now

Will the rush of blood from the cut alerts your brain of the physical pain

You realise there is just a pinch of pain and you wonder how can you feel this pinch of pain when you feel nothing else

And that is the deciding factor that you are not completely hollow from inside and that you have not become completely numb till now. Maybe there is still something left in you that feels the pain. Because, if that goes away, then nothing will be able to stop you. Because, then you will know that there is nothing left in you anymore.

Hence you put a semicolon (;) after every incomplete story and convince yourself “this is not the end. It’s just a pause. Maybe there is still hope!”

Question is: till when?
