“A Beautiful Bird” – Nayana Nair

From my broken heart
comes out another bird.
Ignoring me, abandoning me
it flies beautifully, cruelly
into another world
away from me
and something feels a little less in me.
I am not complaining.
I always wanted to feel a little less.
I was glad that in some way a part of me
is finally free from me,
that some part of me could finally breathe.


  1. When a love leaves, the pain remains until we decide to release it. Very eloquent your verses to express yourself with so much feeling. I liked your poem.

  2. The broken heart will mend on its own unless we choose to harbour the cause, but a sign of that healing can be the process of letting go and starting the road to reclaiming yourself. A nice poem πŸ™‚

  3. enjoyed this one
    your writing tends to leave me with questions
    but thats a good thing when it comes to poetry, no?
    words filled with deep thoughts

    1. Even I like poems that gives me questions or situation to think about and explore. So I am glad that you find my work doing the same. It’s a huge compliment.
      Thank you so much πŸ™‚
      Glad you liked it πŸ™‚
