Drifting away

Have always been fond of poetry.Poetry is so beautiful to express emotions.It can be interpreted any way you like.There is beauty in precision.Sometimes a single poem can express what pages of prose cannot.

Here's one I wrote recently.





Drifting away



I watch helplessly
As we drift farther apart.
I want to call out
But this time, words won’t suffice.
The rope has already been cut
And the tide is too strong.

I watch helplessly
As each wave, carries us farther apart.
I want to call out
But this time, a wish won’t suffice.
The ties have already been broken
And the distance is too long.

I watch helplessly
And I silently endure the pain
Of drifting away.

  1. That seams so sad. Is it about a broken relationship?

  2. Wish I could answer that! :-)Break ups happen only inside my head..In reality,I feel breaking up is futile because life is so short.

  3. This conveys a deep sense of helplessness, having struggled to swim against what has turned out to be against the tide, you have seen that to which you have clung onto taken away from you.

    You say the rope has been cut..but by who?..But then you say you endure the pain of driffting away..perhaps the real pain was actually holding on?

  5. I have read a lot of your work Preeti and I am in love with your style of writing.

    Sometimes, it is good to "Let go" than to "Hold on". In the best interest of everyone and of situations, it is good to close ourselves.

Wake Up Life is Calling by Preeti Shenoy : Cover launch!

Hello there!

How have you been? I have been immersed in shifting my home and settling down, as you know from my last post.

If you have been following me on social media, you will also know about my NEW BOOK!  It is a sequel to Life is What You Make It.



So, your favourite character Ankita is back! This book takes off where the first one ended. The first book has an epilogue which tells you what happened fifteen years later. But it doesn't give you any details about you what happened immediately afterwards, and in the time period leading up to those 15 years.
Life is what you make it ends with Ankita coming out of the mental hospital, and joining a creative writing course. The new book Wake Up, Life is Calling starts off from there.
This book was a very difficult one to write (It took me 8 years, and I wrote nine more books in the meantime) to go back to narrate Ankita's story. I am really excited about how it has turned out.

Since Ankita starts her life afresh, in the city of …
