Poetry: The Perception

Posted: November 5, 2018

A poetry that talk’s of a women’s pain, sorrow, and agony of losing someone really close to you, your heart and trying to deal with all such things.  

Today when I heard of you

My eyes overflowed

It’s long too long since I heard from you

But something was there that belonged to you

as much as belonged to me

It wasn’t apparent

it wasn’t hidden either

Certain feelings are beyond the reach of words

what was there that filled my eyes with briny water

was it the moments

that were spent together

long too long back

or the pain a woman perceives

on hearing another woman in pain
