“let me hold you close” – Nayana Nair

my heaven
would have flowers in blue,
a storm of sunshine,
a road that runs like the soft song
that you once made me hear,
a sparrow that never stays still.

obviously
i do not know what it would be like
to live in such a heaven.
whether i would really be at peace there.
but through the walls of stone
that i could never scale
it looked so beautiful-
the world that you lived in.

but i cannot break what i am
nor can i chase away the shadows that i depend on
it is too late for that.
so before i close my eyes for the last time
let me hold you close.
become my last memory,
become my heaven.

  2. The heaven being ‘outside’ and being a part of the beautiful dream that gives also doubt, does it exist. Will you ever scale the high walls, would you use a ladder if offered. We do not know the answers to such questions. The finish leaves us with a hint of sadness for we do not want you to fade away. Within your words, there are signs, a ray from the sunshine occasionally pierces the dark forest glade. Lovely work Nayana πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
