Wrought, with fear,
Taut lines, drawn near,
Cramped, feelings sear,
I feel caged.

Gossamer wings clipped,
Walls of Sanctum, chipped,
My dignity, stripped,
I feel maligned.

Now I lie in wake,
For reaper's sake,
Dressed in morose gear,
I await death.

@ R.Ramesh

:)Yes. Been feeling so for a while.

R. Ramesh said...

Hello Nikita, I've seen you've changed your blog template to black and seem upset... the poem does not give me positive vibes either... If it is the marriage hangover, I'm sure it'll set in after a while... If there's anything you want to share, feel free to write to me.
Regards. God Bless.

Nikita Banerjee said...

@ Sneha

Thanks! :) I am okay now but surely reconnect with you once I am back to Mumbai in Mid August. How you doing?

Walls of Sanctum, chipped

I share the same views. Liked your blog very much.

I'm fine, Nikita... Relationships do that to you, you know...Once while doing John Berryman's poems, our lit prof. mentioned it in class - relationships are soul cause of trouble!

Nikita Banerjee said...

@ S

Haha totally agree. Sometimes I wish we were granted the authority to choose our relatives as well. :)

Nikita, this was deadly serious and haunting. My first reading of your poetry, and I'm very impressed by the depth of feeling expressed here. Sure, it's dark, but without darkness, we would not appreciate the light. Great write. Amy

Nikita Banerjee said...

@ Sharplittlepencil

Thank you Amy! :)
