“The End of My Sad Story” – Nayana Nair

I want to tell myself
that my sad story had ended,
that now I can write a better one,
where I won’t be suffering again.

But I have known myself more than anyone.
In the waters that choked me,
even when it hurt,
even when I was about to loose myself
the only thing on my mind
my only sadness was for the love I never found.

And there lies my failure,
there lies the source of my misfortune.
That even after everything ends,
after I have cried my last tears,
nothing would change.
I would walk into every new day
and I would only see the broken yesterday.
I would end up in front of doors
that have never opened for me.

    Well expressed with a touch of sadness. Sometimes we do need to be with what is, that is what is there at this moment. Well done.

    When a door closes, it hopes that another one will open again.

      True. And though another door opens up, it important that we do not repeat our mistakes from past. For repeating those mistakes and expecting a different outcome only causes us more pain.
