“Somehow” – Nayana Nair


I am fed up of trying to find signs
and proofs,
begging for reassurance from strangers
that I am somehow special,
that I matter.


“Glass I am made of ” – Nayana Nair


There were days in my life
when I knew the sun could never shine brighter
and I can never be more happy.
I thought these with the innocent belief
of constancy of happiness,
rather than the realization
that put an end to hopes.
Somehow with time the glass I am made of
has bend,
has flowed silently and collected
at safe crowded corners.
And now every light that enters me
is manipulated beyond recognition
into the reflection of my own poison heart.

“Denied”- Nayana Nair


I have not been denied my dream.
But I was given too much time,
and too less conviction in myself.
I have been denied the vision
to see me for what I am,
for what I do.


“What is it like?” – Nayana Nair

gfgdg (1)

I have not known
what it is like
to stop looking for ways to prove
people and their minds
as the root of my the problems.
What is it like
to stop hurting others,
thinking everyone out there
has something against me.
What it is to undo the harm
of many many hands.
What is it like to help someone forget
the pain of living.


“Seek Me Out” – Nayana Nair


I can feel you crying .
I feel your tears on my cheeks.
I can feel your fear in my hand.
I feel the words of the lost one
falling on my ears.
I cannot understand if they are
the words I wanted to hear.
This life is getting lonely,
my heart is getting dark
and I have only you
the one who caused my suffering
who can stop me from
extinguising the flame of my mind-
the only place she is alive.
Why won’t you look for me?
Why won’t you seek me out?
Your misery could be a good excuse
for me to live a little longer.
Your misery could be a good excuse
to keep her face in light.


Quill Commander Award

So  UNIVERSE FIREFLIE  has once again nominated me for an award. I can’t thank her enough for kindness. Do visit her blog. She writes really well. 🙂

So the rules:

Thank the blogger who nominated you and post a link of their blog …(done)
List the rules of the award…(done)
Post a photo of your national flag and national anthem
Leave a favorite quote
Nominate some bloggers (won’t be doing that, as I already said, I totally don’t feel like doing this right now #WeirdMoodOfMine )

So, I am from India (I don’t think I have ever mentioned my nationality anywhere on my blog…let me check… it seems that I have…in another award post)

Here is a beautiful national flag of my country:


And national anthem of my country is “Jana Gana Mana” (written by Rabindra Nath Tagore) . I miss singing it so much. That would be one of the things I miss about school. (Yeah, but recently we started to sing national anthem in cinema halls, so that’s good 🙂 )

Favorite Quote:


“Be it a rock or a grain of sand, in water they sink as the same.” – Oldboy

I won’t say it is my favorite quote (there are too many to choose from). But it is a recent favorite. I saw Oldboy (2003) last weekend (yeah I am always late to watch/read good stuff). I liked it a lot. It is kind of twisted and dark movie, so I don’t think it is everyone’s cup of tea. But I liked the movie a lot. And this quote reminds me that even small actions can have huge impact on other’s life, that one may not intend. And we may forget things that we do because they have no consequence in our own life, but meanwhile that forgotten act may be enough to alter someone’s  life in huge way. The size or magnitude of your actions doesn’t determine the effect they have. (Somewhere it reminded me of butterfly effect also)

So that was it.

Again I would like to thank UNIVERSE FIREFLIE  for nominating me for this award.


Proud Blooming

Posted on


Those trees whose names I never learned
Identify themselves at the window
With their proud blooming.
The night shadows itself
On a small joyous lamp.
A silvered butterfly dances
Into our flickering life
Through light of a dream’s
Last moment.
