“Lost Color” – Nayana Nair

The moon shines in my tear lined eyes.
On the edges of my nails that have lost their color.
Tonight once again
light falls on only on those bits of me
that are in no need for the love of a neutral god.

  1. Thought provoking is all I have to say. You have a strong streak of creativity. That’s hard to find these days.

    1. mostly people say that everyone is god’s child, gives out unconditional love to everyone. He is almost neutral and not taking anyone’s side. But when we are going through bad time, when we are breaking up inside, we wish the god cared for us a bit more than others, that he would take our side. That’s why in the poem it is written that these parts of me that are broken do not need the love of a neutral god anymore.
      Not sure if I am explaining this well. πŸ™‚
