“feelings suspended in the void of my heart” – Nayana Nair

Everything you do,
everything I say
is suspended in the layers
of admiration and disbelief.
What I feel lies somewhere between
“the love that is” and “the love that cannot be”.
This place,
where my uncertain feelings live,
here you will find my many graves
and here I will die again.
Not because your love can’t save me,
but because I doubt every heart
that holds me too dear,
I want to run away from this love
that is ready to die with me.

  1. The lines, “No because your love can’t save me / but because I doubt every heart / that hold me too dear” is very striking and powerful. Wonderful poem, Nayana!

  2. Wow that is a very moving poem – I especially was caught by this line – “where my uncertain feelings live,
    here you will find my many graves
    and here I will die again.”

  3. Nayana the lines,
    ‘This place,
    where my uncertain feelings live,
    here you will find my many graves
    and here I will die again.’ say it all. This poem is hauntingly beautiful.
