A probable metaphor

By: Satyarth Shukla


So you were there?

you watched me

crying on the road

beside the streetlight

you watched me fall down

on my vomit

when I was too drunk

you watched me


for my rights

you watched me


at myself

you watched me


on the bathroom floor

with my head pushed

against the wall

the shower open

water dripping down

do I need you,

my conscience?

when all you do is watch?
