“Mistaken” – Nayana Nair


there were others as well
who were standing beside me till now,
who loved me, at least liked me.
Surely I am mistaken
that I am abandoned.
There were several houses that fell silent
as my legs lingered on their doorsteps.
There was a sigh of relief as I left.
A sigh
muffled by my own will to ‘not hear’.
As I went far from them,
their memories and promises
became louder in my head.

Surely I was mistaken.

    sorry. had to do that

    1. Nayana Nair says:

      Yeah, it is about the friendships that we thought was for life but it isn’t and sometime you don’t know the distance and harsh words (sometimes spoken behind our backs ) you heard are really true that you want to shut your eyes to the reality or blame oneself for reacting too much, loving too much.
      I felt it was me being over-sensitive that I felt the alienation. 😦

        the exact same thing is happening in my life.
        and its pretty messed up because when things like this happen u just feel insecure about yourself and feel like you invested so much while the other person didnt even think about you.
        its messed up because usually things like this happen and u lose the will to open your self up to somebody

      2. Nayana Nair says:

        I know EXACTLY what you feel. It is a torturous phase (for me that phase never passes, I have just started to avoid honest friendship) but I figure it is impossible to find a real friend (now I have lost track of what my meaning of “real” was initially) and even if you do, all these friends are for moment. Worse thing is you start even doubting the good time you had together.
        Unrequited friendships πŸ™‚
