“Selfish till the end” – Nayana Nair

i stumble,
bruise my face,
find your lips
break my ribs,
kiss your hate
and pray
for the noise of my heart
for your sad voice
to be silenced.
pray that i don’t wake up
for a long long time
is ‘long long time’ enough to be forgotten?
pray that the ones i love
who don’t want to love me, but they do
do not walk into this scene
where i plead in incomprehensible words
for mercy,
for death of my senses
for a sleep without your face,
without your ruined heart
pray that they do not see
how easily i break.
pray they don’t force my last words
to be the words that have always made my heart ache
i love you?

    Creativity at its best. Really liked the choice of colour and crossed lines. Totally impactful. And as usual full of water sign’s emotions.

      Glad that you liked it πŸ™‚
      I was not so sure if I should cross out the lines or not, so i am glad it worked and conveyed what I meant.
      Thank you so much πŸ™‚
