“I have nothing of you” – Nayana Nair

I walked into troubles, into fogged minds,
into friend circles that cultivated their alter egos
on every meager piece of earth
that they otherwise couldn’t plant their feet upon.

I walked into crumbling cities, into impossible dreams,
into the lifeless replicas of your heart-
hoping you would come after me.
But as time ate me up
I just hoped that you’d remember name at the least.

I wish that you had stepped a little closer to me,
given me false hope, and broken my heart.
but I have nothing of you,
nothing to hate you for,
nothing to remember your love by,
except the empty place I made for you to stay in me
– the only part of me that makes living difficult for me.

  1. An interesting piece. I can’t really imagine that anyone close to you would have nothing to remember you by πŸ™‚ Yes, sometimes we do seem to get close to someone and then paths diverge and you wonder did you ever really know them, have they left memories? πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    1. Yeah, it is something sort of that, when we question if we ever knew the person we cherished so much. When all we loved was unreal, even the memories we made with them are not of the real them. Also, the relationship there are relationships where only one person keep giving getting nothing in return, there are relationships that were made for the sake of it, for the sake of appearance. There are so many cases in where one can be left with nothing in spite of the love one might feel for the other person.
      Really glad that you liked my poem πŸ™‚
      Thank you πŸ™‚
