“REMINDER” – Nayana Nair

IMG_20160623_122246

Bright light hovering over my head

Lighting me up, making me its own.

Inseparable, as if I am light itself.

The blinding brightness of my being

Leaves me incapable of finding my way

Through my own thoughts, turned strangers.

In this light, I have nothing to write

Nothing that’s mine.

And I fear these blank pages

Will be a reminder

Of a fruitless day.

The ship sitting at

The edge of my closed window.

It looks out at the wind.

The wind creating

An ever-changing mosaic

Of ruffling leaves.

It looks at the wind that belongs to it,

But never touches its lifeless white sails.

It looks for the ocean

That it was never made for.

My fears were in vain,

I have finally filled this page

With words that are reminder

Of  a fruitless life.

  1. A touch of writers block?

    1. Yes, that unfortune afternoon, I was just sitting wanting to write something, anything. But my mind was so silent. But my hands were so restless, I had to write something. So, I just wrote about not being able to write. But thankfully, that cute little ship saved me. 🙂
