“Another mistake of the same kind” – Nayana Nair


how many times
have we walked like this
on roads far away from our homes
even as the only thing we dreamed of
was the warmth we were leaving behind?

the memory of love
fades slowly with the last light.
how many times have we regretted
not looking back?

how often have we chosen silence
over words that can fix everything?


  1. So often upon leaving, we look back at all the good times or secure times, and most of all to the friends that we leave behind. There are many many reasons I would have wished to stay in Florida but life moves on in ways that we do not expect and then we have to see new opportunities, seek out new loves, and eventually the sun does shine again. Take care Nayana 🙂

    1. Nayana Nair says:

      So true. Though what we leave behind is irreplaceable, but sometimes we must forward in life not only for the sake of surviving but also because this world is huge and beautiful and there are things and people that are meant to be in your life. There is so much possibilities of love and kindness that we can create a heaven , a home for ourselves wherever we go.
      Thanks for sharing your memories 🙂

      Have a beautiful day 🙂
