“FRIGHTENED”- Nayana Nair

alone

I roam around these empty rooms,

this silent hallway.

And I am frightened.

Not frightened of loneliness or ghosts.

I am frightened of my response to this solitude.

I am frightened to see every fraction of me relax.

I am frightened of how calm my mind is,

how confident and powerful it feels.

I am frightened to know that any place can be my home

if it is mine and only mine.

I am frightened that this solitude

that gives me everything I want;

will take me far far way from

the people I love.

I am frightened that I love this loneliness so much

that I might always be alone.

About Nayana Nair

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. :)

    I used to feel this way about being that calm when I’m alone. I figured I’m an introvert so there’s nothing wrong with it. How are you doing?

    • I figured out I am introvert but the life I live and the situation are hard to cope being introvert. Everyone is not understanding about that. 😦
      I am doing fine. πŸ™‚

        Ah I see. Yeah social norms would like us all to be extroverts because apparently being introverted just isn’t cool enough or something. But then there’s a lot of misunderstanding around what introversion is and isn’t. Don’t worry I know exactly how you feel. My advice to you is just to find your people and ignore what the haters say. And you will find your people. Statistically, 50% of people are introverts. Some people are just better at hiding it!

      • Thanks for the advice. I hope I find more people like me. πŸ™‚

  3. This poem gives me a reflection of myself when I’m alone and surprisingly, I’m not afraid. I’m starting to get a hang of your poems. Keep up the good work!
