From the Pocket of a Dream

*Curled Up*

As a fragile lady
morning lies mute
upon the frozen blades of grass
She dares not even tremble
or breathe
in the stiffness of the new day

And I couldn’t help
but see
my own soul within
All curled up
frightened in its silent corner
holding a wish
of being forgotten
never ever found
nor reminded of the crowd
outside this self-invented shelter

Dew drops want to cry
but they just stare
Morning lies mute next to the graveyard
sharing the cozy silence
with those
possessing the luck
of the careless sleep

    Sometimes I retreat so far I want to curl up into a ball and be invisible. This is how so many of us feel at times, I think. It’s sad yet, I empathise because I feel it too. Lovely, image and emotive filled piece. My piece for dVerse today is on a similar line too.

    A heartfelt piece…beautiful eloquent and filled with the emotion of loneliness and fear. Well done! 😀
    Always a joy to stop by here,
    Love and hugs,

      Also, as I was re-reading it, I stumbled upon this word ‘breath’ in S1 L5. Is the usage intentional? Because I guess it should be ‘breathe’- the verb, not ‘breath’- the noun.

      Just an observation. Perhaps lack of sleep makes me weird. 😐

        It’s all done now Mihir….no, it wasn’t intentional, just an error because of my rashness 🙂 Thanks for noticing, I appreciate it a lot

    This is lovely! I especially like the last verse, delicate, evocative as well as moody. Well done indeed.
