Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!



You let go the trigger of your words,

hitting bulls eye, it shredded my soul.

battered and betrayed

the hurt , buried deep in my heart.

for long, it lay captive in the confines

waging a lonely battle with raging emotions and angst.

rising  from the depths of anguish

it, finally  found  freedom!

    Yes and when it did, I wiped it with my own hands, only to learn that self love and respect weigh heavier than your lonely words of harshness and betrayal. 🙂
    Beautifully expressed Radhika! ^_^

    A beautiful poem, the art by Aditi, accentuating the depth of the poem….
    However…behold…let the tears roll… for its a cleansing of the soul….
    let joy rock and the tears roll… and fill up the life’s scroll…

      Yes, I agree Karthik. Suppression of any emotion leads to more miseries…..always better to let them out. It was actually Aditi’s sketch that inspired me to pen this poem.

    Beautiful teamwork of the mother-daughter If the tear comes out from the right eye first it is the tear of happiness & joy.But when it rolls from the left it is tear of pain and sorrow.Trauma is sad.
