“Temperaments and Thoughts” – Nayana Nair

We once loved this worldmore than ourselves.Now we just like everythingonly as much as our own temperaments and thoughts permit.

I wanted to be adored unconditionally, cared for without limits. In that dream there only existed me and this love. There was no room for any other mortal human, no room for weakness except mine. There was no room for you.

“Cure Me of Me” – Nayana Nair

“Clueless” – Nayana Nair

If I was to resent that everyone I met, everywhere I went, everyone took something from me, yanked it out of my consciousness, moved within my mind with dirty shoes and clumsy hand, and left me clueless of who I am. Then I would also have to thank this world for all the things thatContinue reading ““Clueless” – Nayana Nair”
