“Shore of Mornings” – Nayana Nair

As I swim towards the shore of morning,
I think of you sometimes.
Sometimes I think of you without malice
or hatred or blame.
Only sometimes.
Sometimes I am able to separate your existence
from my pain.
I guess,
you are no longer my wound
or weakness or love.

So as I swim back to the shores
that for once are there within my reach,
I can look back at you
and smile,
wanting nothing in return.
That is happiest end I can give you.

    Glad the shore is there Nayana. Not sure I can see one yet!

      Thanks dear 🙂
      Hope you find your shore as well. You will reach there eventually 🙂 ❤️
      From my personal experience, accepting that I am worthy of being on shore was more difficult than seeing the shore.

  2. Wow i love this really resonates for my own current experience too. 💚
