LONGING FOR LOVE: POEM BY NISHA THAYIL

POEM: NISHA THAYIL
LONGING FOR LOVE
by

Nisha Thayil


Feeling such grief
Felling such despair
This is how it feels when I can't find my love out there.
I am stuck in a dark hole
Locked up with anguish in my heart
But some how I can't break free
Because the anger of feeling alone will never leave me.
Without the expression of love
I am blind, depriving me of light
But hope lingers on and I see flicker
Of love beyond my grasp.
I am tormented, I am silenced
When I look into a mirror, I see all the troubles and sorrows
My reflection prevents me from going to the right direction
Taking my desired love and affection.
It feels as though each time I touch love
It's like a rose petal that falls off to the ground
As I give my heart away
I am left with nothing
Just some disdain, some high sighs
Forbidding me from keeping my head up high.
As I prick my finger on the thorns of the rose
Blood starts to pour leaving my heart to become sore
As I look above, I see this beautiful white dove
It is so pure, innocent and so clear
Flying just like me, to find that special love.
