allowing this world
to enter your mind
is an isolating experience.
Only I can know
how something enters my mind,
how my mind cannot make sense of it,
how I close my eyes to new light,
how I give up
and let this experience take over me.
We can look at a flower together.
But only I can know
what it means
to look at this flower as me.
I can show you my playlist,
I can tell you the quotes that stay with me,
I can even give you my heart.
But at the end
all I see,
all I feel
can be only felt by me.

I am Nayana Nair. I'm 28. Just a person who has tons of things to talk about....not much organized thoughts sadly.
I'm interested in all forms of storytelling (though I don't have the talent for it). So I like series, movies, novels, anime, and whatnot. I'm also really passionate about music, psychology, learning languages (I just dream big, too undisciplined to makes any actual progress) and literature. I am overall just a curious person who is interested in all kinds of things, as long as they suit my taste.
I always wanted to be a writer (and also a teacher)..But I don't think I have the skills required...this blog is just my attempt at becoming the writer I always wanted to be...Blogging for few years, I have realized I am more of a poet (although, I am not sure that I am good enough for that label)...I hope I realize more about myself through writing.
Thanks for dropping by!! Hope I didn't disappoint. :)

MAGIC WORDS NAYANA, THANKS FOR SHARING, CHINA
Really glad that you liked it 🙂
Thank you 🙂 😀
Beautiful lines! Thank you for sharing them!
Glad you liked it 🙂
Thank you 🙂 😀
You are more than welcome! 🙂
If we look at the flower together it is rewarding to see how each feels. Your last few lines reflect something that is actually quite common, giving but in the end if all you have is only you this sometimes means that your heart received nothing in return. We may reveal ourselves in ways we do not intend. Your intricacies and delicacies in words are a joy to read, unravelling them for my interpretation (if not yours) is an enjoyable experience 🙂
And maybe because we all view same thing so differently, everything in life carries more meaning and importance than it otherwise would.
I am really glad that you liked my work 🙂 Thank you so much for your kind words, means a lot 🙂
Yes, you find that joy and sometimes intrigue when different readers interpret differently. Sometimes there is an added bonus when occasionally someone points to a line and gives an interpretation, you look and realize they discovered a deeper meaning and then you realize that is exactly what was in your mind.
