I don’t carry with me golden strings
of pompous words, nor an embroidery
of the embellished locutions for
what I carry in me is a bleeding heart
from where words gush out a greenish
pus from decomposing wounds forever
in loop for they never heal, as my brain
keep playing the same slapstick movie
again and again, my miserable spirit
trapped with in the grotesqueness of
familial events, angered and then

Dark, sad, painful, emotionally intense with vibrant and gorgeous imagery. Yes, there are wounds that never heal. And those that do become the everlasting scars that form the landscapes of our souls and bodies. A marvelous read, Tanya.

Thanks Count, aren’t the same incidents play in front of our eyes and make us feel miserable, as if we are in some kind of loop? Same thoughts which plague as day and night? I truly appreciate your humble reading!
An emotional and sad plea from an anguished heart, your last few lines are painful,

Wow magical Tanya. Even the bleeding heart is desirable, for it spits golden verses
Shantanu, bleeding heart might be desirable to others but not to me 🙂 Thanks for being always so encouraging, truly appreciate it!
Oh I am sorry. Didn’t want you to feel that way. All I wanted to convey is your writing is beautiful
It’s ok no worries, thanks for your kind words 🙂
Lucky to be sober – My anger last for days and sometimes never ceases
Thanks for your kind insight, my anger is always there its a process everyday, but then as the day passes I get normal. But its a same story everyday! However I am glad that you stopped by and shared your insight!
My pleasure ! I purified my heart many times, but somehow the seed remained as the ordinary world likes to make it grow – But I managed to totally take it away for a year, long ago, i’m therefore very grateful nonetheless.
we are always trapped with in certain thoughts which cause us the heart-ache time and again!
Except when the mind takes a whole new course – and the right one. Would you agree with that ? I’m Steering, steering the heavy vessel 😊
Thanks, truly appreciate it!
