Today, my bones are cracked from ache… push me and I leave the clay…
Re-post this… my voice is broken and my hands are disappeared in the fog…
Krishna, my love… cure my pain…

How could I stop the beating heart,
Even when ache is all it makes.

I am stretched in such a way
That only being out of the clay
Could be the answer of my prayers.

Beloved,
Get me out of this loop,
I am tired of this exile,
Where can I land,
if no place on earth welcome this clay.

Today,
All I ask is the death of my clay,
Freedom of all pain,
Jump into your boundless space.

I am scared to look into the reflection
Of my face,
What the world’s mirror projects,
Forgotten shades,
Old ghosts
Keep coming back,
Fear and pain
Hand in hand.

I cannot hold the tears,
When no courage is left for my lips
To smile .
I am tired of this journey
Inside out,
thorn apart from all ups and downs,
Where is my home,
where is my love?
How can my soul return?!!

I no longer feel alive,
Behind my beating heart,
Is the empty space,
possessed by pain.
Tell me when this pain will end,
Or
I will end.

  1. I no longer feel alive,
    Behind my beating heart,
    Is the empty space,
    possessed by pain.
    Tell me when this pain will end,
    Or I will end.

    Very much familiar … pain can cause swirls in our hearts, that will empty it of all feelings but desire for the end.

    Heartfelt and creative!

    Thank you for your visits!

  2. Dear Blue Shaman, what a great name. It must be the depth of your own heart that could delve deep and feel what I feel. A friend wrote me these words a while ago,

    “I give you my life and receive yours as the same heart, same life, the same consciousness; at its core silent, aware, free…” Thank you

  3. Serena…
    Such words only come from the depth of soul who has known their Twinsoul in this form…
    Thank you so much for sharing these words…
    Hold the light and inspiration for many to know these feelings… I look forward to such passion…
    Much Peace…
    Blue…

  4. Very profound, moving…I am touched by your words. If I do not comment on each poem that you post, please know that I visit your site daily and that your words melds with my thoughts and inner being.

    Regards,
    Elizabeth
