“Pointless” – Nayana Nair

.

I have prayed for something
that will never be granted.

I have decided
never to be happy with anything else but that,

no one else but you,
no other life but the one I vowed to live without.

I have decided to suffer pointlessly.
It suits me well, this punishment.

It suits me well, this path
that goes back to all the beautiful places,

all the innocent people and feelings that
I starved and hurt for the sake of an easy life.

    1. True. But I feel to overcome the cycle of self-blame and punishing yourself takes time. I hope we all are able to come in terms with our own guilts and find in ourselves the courage to start again or at least to find ways to fix what can be fixed instead of trying to compensate for one sadness with another. But yeah, like you, I also hope that no one suffers this.
