“Hobby”- Nayana Nair


My hobby is
to find an unclaimed space in myself
and then try to color it.
Because I am bored.
Because I have trouble
that are taking up much more spaces
and this is the only space left for me
in my own life.
And here I create,
I paint my desperation, self-doubt
on the whites of my eyes.
Again I create a monster,
again a little more space I lost,
again I lost a little of my life,
and I wonder why do I suffocate myself.


  1. Beautiful poem and image!! Living in suffocation is big problem needs to find solution! Then why not to ask the soul itself!!
    Fantastic poem

      There is a quote that I love by Albert Camus that I was suddenly reminded of : “The important thing is not to be cured but to live with one’s ailment.”
