*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

  5. Oh that is so beautifully put :-).

    I also really like your blog layout :-). Looking forward to reading more of you.

  6. 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.

  7. 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,

  8. “Dew drops want to cry
    but they just stare


    • 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

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

  10. I’m still curled up … a lot … but starting to try out my wings … more and more … thanks again for your beautiful soul food and inspiration, my lovely friend. Always, cat.

  11. Another heartfelt post of thoughts … Within each of us there is a part which is curled up.. Hoping we are not alone or forgotten,,
    I Know Eclipse that your shelter is now secure, your trembling days are departed… Long may you now just Curl up within those Arms who keep you safe..
    Much love sent your way my dear Friend..
