Doe

A Skittish doe

Fancy flights

Affright the spirit

Thunder and gloom

Tears of doom

N’er see the light 

Bare the room

Of course the flight!

Options of a Single Spinster

Being a single person in her 30s is hard. Especially in a conservative and stereotypical setting.

One starts doubting and questioning self. Was staying single worth it? Should I just get married? But is all this compromise really going to be worth it..? Will my “i do” really be the best solution to life’s travails?

Veracity & Lies

imagesI told myself a pretty lie
I almost convinced myself
Might have done the unthinkable
But scarce could let myself.

‘Twas you who
Got stuck in between
You
Whose heart
Might even
Have touched.

This convincing lie
I barely could swallow
Nor let you strive
To ascertain veracity.

VACUUM

“Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light;
I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.”  –   Sarah Williams

 

Float away…

Sometimes it’s this dark unfeeling vacuum that gives one the space and the break one needs in life. A whirlpool may cause destruction but in the midst of it all there is an abysmal calm. That’s how I feel. Too many problems, worries, frustrations surround me but I am not completely rattled or baffled.

Just distanced. Detached. And Resigned.

Untouched

 I’ve got grit, I’ve got fire 
 But it lies unfanned.
I’ve got love, I’ve got pain

 But it lies untouched.

Loving & Hating

I hate you
Because I love you
With a love
I can not help

My love so true
So strong and pure
It engulfs me whole
Still leaves me hollow

Yet

What do I know
Of romantic love?
The love you
Profess for me?

What do I know
Of world’s draped ways?
Of acting in
The expected way?

I just love
With
An honest heart.
Can’t help
But do.

Distant Dream

a tiny spark

a tiny spark

 Slumped not slayed
Hope’s distant dream
That tiny spark’s
Still alive in me…
