“These days” – Nayana Nair


These days
I want to stay away from people,
who I once called friends,
(I think they never called me that)
and I have doubts on what I feel.

These days
I am suffering from an unexplained aversion
to human relation and condition.
My efforts are spent
in avoiding people and small talks.

These days,
I spend my days
thinking, “What is wrong with me?’,
knowing that these feeling are weird
and still not finding something wrong
where there should be soomething wrong.
In the brief moments when I am reminded
of once dear faces,
I feel an ache,
a feeling that I have been let down,
I have been betrayed by everyone,
I have been wronged.

These days,
I am no longer myself.
I am somewhere where
I have lost sense of myself and others.
Even though you miss me,
even though you love me,
please don’t try to bring me back.


  1. May you see better days

  2. Hmmm so much pathos and sadness in your poem Nayana though nicely worded.

    1. Nayana Nair says:

      Thank you πŸ™‚
      Glad you liked it πŸ™‚
      Though I don’t like writing such sad poems, but somehow I end up writing them 😦 😦

      1. It sure happens sometimes we can write sad poems too. Go and have a look at my poem today it is very different.

  3. Dark cloud will soon pass away with beautiful sun rays!!

    1. Nayana Nair says:

      I hope so too.
      Thanks for such hopeful thoughts. πŸ™‚

  4. There are times when we need to be by ourselves to figure what we want, etc. May you find what you’re looking for sooner than later. A big hug.

  6. I relate to 110 percent of what you have written here.

    1. Nayana Nair says:

      I am glad that you could relate it.
      Though it is sad and comforting at the same time to know that one is not alone in such situations. πŸ™‚
      Thanks a lot πŸ™‚

      1. It is sad but you are not alone and I wish you better things than how you feel now, but you are honest about how you feel that is the best thing and it will set you free instead of those who pretend they never feel it, you face it. xo
