“CHALK DUST”-Nayana Nair

851198-chalk-drawing

The ache subsided,

The sobs quietened,

Breathing light and heart stitched back.

What remained was bitterness

That the tears left behind.

Those friends got lost,

Some left, some forgot,

Away from eyes, erased from mind.

What remained was the void in air,

That clouds of their laughter once occupied.

The facts changed,

The notebooks disappeared,

The blackboards erased and benches got rust

What remained was childhood,

Trapped forever in chalk dust.

Hi, I am Nayana Nair. I'm 25. Just a crazy girl who has tons of things to talk about....not much organized thoughts sadly. I like to talk about everything...mostly..every conversation of mine turns into a monologue.... So I decided I should start writing a blog..rather than chat.... I'm very much passionate about music, psychology and literature.... Moderate interest in science..... I always want to be a writer (and also a teacher)..But I don't think I have the skills required...this blog is just my attempt at becoming the writer I always wanted to be...Blogging for few years, I have realized I am more of a poet (although, I am not sure that I am good enough for that label)...I hope I realize more about myself through writing. Thanks for dropping by!! Hope I didn't disappoint. :)
