“Effortless” – Nayana Nair

On the other side of this puddle,
where my feet is caught,
is the ocean of joy
in which I wandered
only to be caught in the hook of the sadness
that slips into my wound so effortlessly
that the pain felt like love,
because it felt like the only thing that I could call as mine.

    1. I agree with you on that point.
      From my personal experience, there have been times when I have been moved to tears by the pain of others and I thought I understood them and felt their pain. But when I was faced with those same issues and same suffering, the depth of what I feel was something so different from what I felt when the pain was others.
      Many times I would give them suggestions to get out of those situation, but my own words seemed mockable to me when I went through the same things, understood the rational thinking can do so little to reduce my pain.
