When words dry up. A poem (Blog marathon post 12)





When words dry up
And response stops
When love becomes a trickle
And the reaching out drops

When what once came easy
Now becomes a strain
And the heart yearns for familiarity
But there is only uncharted pain

When are you okay, yes I am
 Becomes a measured reply
And it turns as fake as it can get
But  you are clueless why

When walking away is hard
And so is staying on
But you need to
And you are torn

Stick to your decision, walk away
Be strong , this shall pass like a season
 And once it finally ends, remember
It happens for a reason.

  7. Its the sheer beauty of writing poems... the flow comes naturally and whatever is going through in the writer's mind, is etched in beautiful words. Happiness comes when others also appreciate it. I can empathise the feeling. Very well written Preeti !!

FAQs about my writing course and a writing sample from one of my students.

What happened when an annonymous person sent me flowers.

This morning when I returned from my walk, a pleasant surprise awaited me. It was a gorgeous bouquet of pink flowers, the very same ones you see in the picture above.

'Who has sent these?' I asked my husband.
He shrugged, ' It was there when I came back after walking the dog,' he said.

I looked for a card, and there was none. It was an anonymous mystery sender.

'I am sure you sent it, as a surprise! And you are pretending that you haven't,' I told my husband.
'No, I actually wanted to get you flowers, but I didn't get around to it. I didn't send it. Must be one of your friends,' he said.
I was puzzled. It had to be someone who knew my residential address, and  I wondered who it could be.
'Perhaps it was wrongly delivered, and it was meant for someone else,' I said.
'No chance. How can anyone wrongly deliver these flowers? It's someone who has sent it for you,' said  my husband.
I asked one of my closest friends if he had…
