“All Over Again” – Nayana Nair


All that led me in life-
Sometimes towards you,
sometimes away.
My pride, my greed.
My sense of right
and my lust for wrong.
All have left me alone in life,
as you breathe your last.
Struggling to be free from me.

Your eyes found me hiding
in the truths I created everyday,
so my lies didn’t become apparent to myself.
Maybe because of that you have been tied to me
by what I now know as love.

The questions
of deserving love,
realizing love
no longer haunts my mind.
I wish I could go back to the world
where you breathe,
where you smile,
where you lips, your love, your tears
do not know my name.
For I know,
even if I could do it all over again,
it would all be the same.

        Achcha, was it?

      2. Nayana Nair says:

        I tried my best to portray a character’s feeling (which I saw in a series recently). I tried lot many ways to find the correct way to feel what he must have felt, to portray it as genuine as possible. This was the only version of poem that was “not bad”.
        I am glad that you felt what I wanted to convey. (These are borrowed feeling, written with my perspective πŸ™‚ )
