A Few Wounds and A Pinch Of Salt

A Pinch Of Salt

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…

  1. Rearranging the people in our life, is one of the firm decision which comes with tremendous determination. Very nice poem and congratulations for your poetry book ‘ Mann ki Aarzoo’.
