“Something made up” – Nayana Nair

now that we both are standing lost
at this market to sell our heart.
now when you are just a silent mural,
i feel like pretending to miss you.
in fact, that is the only thing i do.

every day, i write something
that could make a better monster of you.
every night, i get better at shedding fake tears.
our love looks like a lost cause even now,
but it looks more beautiful
since there is nothing real about it anymore.

“it is all fiction”, i tell them.
“i am a liar”, i shout.
but they love me anyway.
they love me the way you should have,
you could have, it was the easiest thing to do.
there were so many easy things,
things that will never be easy again.
since, i have chosen the most ridiculous way to live
and the most difficult the way to die,
the only non-pathetic way to die in our love.

Hi, I am Nayana Nair. I'm 25. Just a crazy girl who has tons of things to talk about....not much organized thoughts sadly. I like to talk about everything...mostly..every conversation of mine turns into a monologue.... So I decided I should start writing a blog..rather than chat.... I'm very much passionate about music, psychology and literature.... Moderate interest in science..... I always want 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. :)


  1. Apart from a great read of the poem, I also for the first time, my fault but IΒ΄m a bit craaaazy, so this time I read the “about” you also, You definitelly have passion in a lot of artistic things and psychology, science, I like people that want to learn and always in life is learning.
    You said that you wanted to be a teacher but you donΒ΄t have the skills……wrong, we read you and learn. So you already are a teacher.
    Take care Nayana, you are a inspiration with your writing, for me atleast.

    1. Really glad that you liked my poem πŸ™‚
      I relate with you that I also like people who value learning, so I am flattered that I seem like one of those…I can never know something like that unless someone else tells me πŸ™‚ (since we are all poor judge of ourselves) So thank you for that πŸ™‚
      I am really glad that my work could inspire you. Means a lot to hear that. I will try my best to continue to write better πŸ™‚
      Have an awesome day. Take care Charly πŸ™‚
