“Cut Away” – Nayana Nair

images

How my feelings turn into a joke
in your hands.
How I have laugh
at the sight of this
and accept it as something normal.
Is this my punishment?
For pushing away people,
who really cared,
who looked for me every time I left.

~~~

But maybe they could do that
only because they never knew me.
But you know me too much.
Every dialogue with you
makes me realize, makes me see
another part of me
that I need to cut away
to become worthy of your love.

  1. AWE this is beautiful. I hope you realize you don’t have to cut away any part of yourself to be worthy of someone’s love. You are already worthy. So worthy. โค

    1. Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad you liked my poem ๐Ÿ™‚
      (I also hope that no one has to change themselves into someone they are not, just to get acceptance. Fighting continuously to preserve myself at the face of such struggles ๐Ÿ™‚ )
