“To settle, To rest” – Nayana Nair


I don’t know what to say.
I hear your hurt.
I feel your words against my skin.
The words that have left your mouth,
left your heart,
stay suspended alone in the air.
All I can do is
to give them some space
on my hands to settle
and to rest.
Or else,
I am afraid they will be lost
just like you.


      1. At that time when I made this blog I was listening to a song “nenjukkul peidhidum” , it is a Tamil song. I am not at all good in Tamil..but can understand a word or two…an the first line of the song according to me translated as “it rains in my heart”.

        And also I love rain…it’s beautiful, sad and still a source of joy…so the idea of such feelings always coexisting in my heart…sounded pretty cool to me. πŸ™‚ πŸ˜€

      1. I’m sure it isn’t hard for most of us! I say it to help install it in my own brain! I work in an auto parts warehouse ten to eleven hours a day, no air conditioning just fans rotating in the summer months hot air around! (Never imagined doing this for the past nine years. . .) hugs xo ~Robin

      2. Thank you, Nayana! I like to share this so others may feel they can “carry on.” Also, explains big gaps in my comments. πŸ™‚
