Hiatus: I Embrace The Cruel Kindness And Move On

Poem: Hiatus - Sailing through the wild territories, yearning to survive each day with ease, I embrace the cruel kindness and move on in the pursuit of an alchemy of my own.


Living in a detached world

Where everything looks whirled

Weaving my own tapestries of life

I move on with the routine strife

Sailing through the wild territories,

Yearning to survive each day with ease,

I embrace the cruel kindness and move on

In the pursuit of an alchemy of my own.

Never miss real stories from India's women.

Buried in the barren dreams

enslaving the life’s extremes,

I gear up for a solitary travel

A journey within myself to unravel.

My feminine identity always craves for an updated version

That can nullify the effect of despair and aversion

I wish for something in intensity

I am annoyed with my unexciting entity.

The unchanging syllable of my throbbing heart

longs for the umbilical cord that is torn apart

The orbit of obsession engulfed by an unrequited void

Slowly teaches me to master the mystery I can never avoid!

The newfound emptiness brightens the cherished desires in me

The medley of emotions, only my tender soul can see.

The one-year-old mother’s journey and the euphoria of creation

Instilled in me a sense of boundless vibration

In the sweet and sour cadences of nights and days

I spend my ephemeral moments in your ethereal daze

From the ennui of everyday life, you release me on bail

The aroma of your newborn innocence, I too inhale.
