“Loss” – Nayana Nair

tumblr_static_3muy6thydzac48oockkowkgsc_640_v2

Surely we have
at least a page in every book we write,
where we brood over
all the things we lost.
And I have often found that page to be
most meaningful.
As if we become better humans
by this loss.
Often on those pages,
I have realized,
not all losses
are to be cried upon.

“Sway” – Nayana Nair

large

The only word I kept under my tongue
my name – and yet it is dissolving
into the fog where all things are lost.
As the weight of my name slips
from my mouth,
I feel how latching onto anything is
a suffering.
I feel how letting everything go is
also a suffering.
And I keep swaying in the currents of
wanting everything
and wanting nothing.
I am living
but I do not know what to do with this world
or with myself.
I have no answers.
Words do not have much meaning
on the lips of someone
who has been abandoned by every word.

“Your Love” – Nayana Nair

I want to be the shiver
that runs through your body,
when you think of the one you love.
There are far more easier things
to say, to want
but they loose their meaning
as they make their way to my mouth.

As the days with you
disintergrate,
I find there are more ways of loving you
that the ways I did.
I find there are countless days ahead
days without me
and my absence has less to do with loss of love
and more with the cruelty of life
and nature of my soul.

How lonely it is to walk alone
even if I walk with you.
How easy it would be to accept this
if only I could become a part of you.
If I would wake up one day
and realise that I am
just one of the many voices in your head.
I think it would be easier to justify this loneliness
if we both are but one.
To know that we can never be separated.
How beautiful it would be, to become your love itself
rather than someone you love.

“A sleep so light” – Nayana Nair

There is a sleep so light
that it rests upon my brow
ever so careful no to slip into my eyes
and I hear its laughter
on my thoughts that have no meaning
or reason
And when it notices
my tears
it takes pity on me
and holds my eyelids down
with the weight of its love
That’s how morning comes
and finds me,
clinging to the sleep,
clinging to the life,
that will soon leave me.

“Justify” – Nayana Nair

The doors that I look for
are just excuses to wander.
Are lies that give meaning to meaningless.
Everyone needs to know “why”.
The reason to put us on their map
of the sanity and dependability.
And if we are stripped of these reasons,
the lies we tell each other,
I do not know
how we would understand each other.
These reasons that we invent
and prepare and practice.
So as not to falter
in front of strangers,
in middle of a performance.
If we loose these,
how will we justify
our worth.
Justify:
Why we deserve to live well,
Why we deserved to be loved well?
Why our existence is not a failure?

“SEARCH”- Nayana Nair

Day and night she felt it

that emptiness that lived within her

which engulfed her life

and enveloped her being

it had its own throbbing heart

and a hunger to be fulfilled

its throbbing each minute

reminded her of futility of life

whatever she may do

wherever she may go

only this emptiness she knew

only this emptiness she had

she fed it all her life

with some lines of songs,

with some words by the wise,

with music and art,

with food, with achievements,

with friends, fame and false love,

with the meaningful and the meaningless

but it stayed, it throbbed

with hunger unsatisfied

and one day someone came in

with a smile and a helping hand

with faith and with love,

and suddenly the throbbing stopped

it was not now within, but without

the throbbing she searched

and found it within his heart

and he found his within hers.
