“I hope you believe” – Nayana Nair

I hope you believe
when I say that
I am not good with words.
For I could fill pages
without giving it a second thought.
But I was never able to say
what needs to be said.
I could never tell anyone
what they mean to me.
I can never tell what I am thinking
without jumbling up my thoughts.
When you wanted to hear
simple words from me
I could never offer them.
I can give words to my sadness,
to my despair and my disappointments.
But I have no words in my mind
for any happiness.
Never had to use any.
Know that you make me happy.
That’s all I can say.
I hope you believe
when I say
I am not good with happiness.

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. :)

  1. The last five lines struck out to me. It’s something I can relate to because I’m not good with happiness…. and having people understand that and still accept you is so comforting. Amazing poem. I love it and great job!

    1. So glad you could relate to it πŸ™‚ (a little sad also, cause I don’t want anyone to feel this sadness that I suffer 😦 ) It is sometimes so difficult to make someone understand this.. And sometimes I feel something is wrong with me for feeling such things. I am so glad you liked my poem πŸ™‚ Thanks a lot πŸ™‚

      1. It is sad, but I’m happy that I can relate too. I think that everyone is a little different from everyone else, so it is not wrong for you to feel that way. It’s just that we are different in that way, and this is normal. I think. ❀ I hope that made sense…

  2. That is so raw!! I’m so glad you found the words to express those thoughts. Before you know it you will come right out and express happiness!
    You spread happiness through your poetry. I love that
