“Only Way” -Nayana Nair

download

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?

  1. 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 πŸŒΌπŸ’›πŸŒΌπŸ’›

    1. 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 πŸ™‚ Thanks a lot πŸ™‚
