She is Born Free

Confab With Me

Hold that thought a moment long, take a few extra moments before you commit, for you may not realize, she is born free, without shackles, barriers and impediments

A message I send to the person I once loved,

There were no butterflies in my womb.

A flesh he said was living in it,

Even its heartbeat felt my part.

Crying at the love I sensed looking in his eyes,

Little did I knew love exists only in pictures.

Why did he make me sleep in those ashes?

Was I not enough?

One day the flesh will unravel its face,

I won’t catch sight of you from then,

I’ll see your mythical love in its eyes,

Then one you never felt but conveyed.

I’ll love him for real, I assure,

There is no need to worry,

I can’t express affection for somebody essence.

“Pointless” – Nayana Nair

it rains in my heart


I have prayed for something
that will never be granted.

I have decided
never to be happy with anything else but that,

no one else but you,
no other life but the one I vowed to live without.

I have decided to suffer pointlessly.
It suits me well, this punishment.

It suits me well, this path
that goes back to all the beautiful places,

all the innocent people and feelings that
I starved and hurt for the sake of an easy life.
