A Few Wounds and A Pinch Of Salt

By:- rANJEETA nATH gHAI

A few wounds;
A pinch of salt;
And a little pain.
But it’s time not to mourn.
The etched memories,
Will serve as a reminder,
Never to trust you again.

*

One eye behind my head,
The other facing forward.
Watching out for stray daggers,
While focusing on the future.
Today, I have rearranged the people in my life,
As per their own rules and standards
And my priority in their lives.

*

Words and excuses were always
Arranged and rearranged.
To avoid standing by my side
When I needed them the most.
Manipulating words; to portray alternate meanings
With no promise of anything.
Now, they and their words are beyond the capacity to hurt me.

*

As long as we continue to deny
What is clear to our naked eye
We shall be used and taken for granted.
With a sudden change
Today, everything has been rearranged.
Negativity; I didn’t want it to be permanent
so I packed my things up; moved out of their lives.

*

….I’m still slowly moving along.
But with people who care…
