Anhedonia

The world has finally succeeded in fooling me,

Lying to me,

Toying with me

And has torn me apart.


Now I am just a broken antique clock,

Who keeps on ticking away.


Day turns into night,

Night turns into day,

Everything is just gone by as a haze.


Nothing startles me,

Nothing excites me,

Nothing saddens me,

Everything seems ordinary.


Life keeps on passing by,

Like a flowing river,

And I am just a boat going where it takes me,

Because I am just a voyager who doesn’t have a destination.


They say to take that as an opportunity to explore the world and I say no,

Because the world is a succubus,

That lures you with false dreams,

And seduces you with its mystery.


They say curiosity killed the cat,

And I can vouch for that,

Because I am the cat who brutally got killed.


My daily dose of books can no longer help me escape my reality,

My colorful paintings are now black,

My eyes no longer light the night,

Nor do my pets bring me joy.


Never have I felt so lost in life,

Never have I been this confused,

Never have I questioned my existence,

Never have I questioned my worth,

Until today because of this dystopian world.


So, I lay still on the bed and look at my ceiling,

And that’s when I have a eureka moment like all great scientists and realize,

That I suffer from anhedonia,

The condition where nothing interests me.


A/N – In case, the last line doesn’t clarify, Anhedonia is the condition where one loses interest in things that he/she loved. This is a very important poem to me. It talks about the very dark phase of life where we stop caring about anything or doing things that makes us happy because we are lost. In case you went through or are going through this please know you are not alone and it’s okay to feel like this. It is a certified 100 percent OKAY to feel lost, confused, or mad about feeling this way BUT, it is NOT OKAY TO BE STUCK ABOUT IT. It will be an extremely hard phase to get out of but start doing one or two things you love again & look in the mirror every day and smile and listen to songs that make you happy and bring a smile to your face.
