To hurt each other was all we knew
The only way we could love
We couldn’t stop
We couldn’t think
Until there was no ‘us’ to hurt.
Till we could only feel pain
at each other’s sight
Till we became numb to everything
but insults and fight
It leaves me wondering
if ‘too much love’ is really ‘love’
Is this what happens
when we give each other everything
and there’s nothing left for ourselves?

I am Nayana Nair. I'm 28. Just a person who has tons of things to talk about....not much organized thoughts sadly.
I'm interested in all forms of storytelling (though I don't have the talent for it). So I like series, movies, novels, anime, and whatnot. I'm also really passionate about music, psychology, learning languages (I just dream big, too undisciplined to makes any actual progress) and literature. I am overall just a curious person who is interested in all kinds of things, as long as they suit my taste.
I always wanted 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. :)

Wow very wise my friend. I think that last line is so true. It’s a shame we learn that too late. I heard someone ask Ruth Ginsburg the secret to a long marriage/relationship, she’s been married 60 years. She said become deaf. It’s so hard not to respond when someone pushes our buttons. Guess she had lots of practice. Love all your posts! Happy Friday 🌼💛🌼💛
Yes, I believe sometimes we torn between loving our self or others, and often it seems that the only right way is to love others and sacrifice our self for their sake….but mostly this choice slowly weakens our relationship…at least that is what I have noticed.
I am glad you like my poem 🙂 Thanks a lot 🙂
