Savior-An ode to poetry

On the last day of the National Poetry Month, I would like to post an ode to poetry, which is my savior.Hope you all enjoyed taking part in NaPoWriMo as much as I did.

Do leave your thoughts in the comment section and share how poetry has been your savior.

Happy blogging!

My poetry keeps me sane.
It demarcates the boundary
between the pleasure and the pain
It saves my soul
savors and protects it
prevents from the debilitating pain
devour it as a whole
My pain morphing
and convulsing
and taking shapes
as it welt and blisters
leaves it everlasting
impressions on my
naked yellow skin
marking its territory
and slowly making its own,

My poetry keeps me sane
It demarcates the boundary and
between the pleasure and the pain
between the ebb and the flow of the
bizarre and the surreal world
my emotions weave around me
swallowing me whole
my life dangling between the
realms of the truth and the reality
a dream, broken to its core

My poetry keeps me sane
It demarcates the boundary and
between the pleasure and the pain
falling into the quicksand
of miseries and anxieties
the ephemeral pain
of losing its identity
slowly and surely
rotting and getting lost
at its pore.

My poetry keeps me sane
it keeps me whole.

      2. haha..I know sometimes these challenges are tiring and they do divert you from your inspiration but it was overall a fun feeling.
        P.S: I still can’t find your bad writing..haha


  1. I raise my pen to you, poetess, for doing your part to bring tribute to this most beautiful art form. Poetry equals sanity for many of us, or, at the very least, the product of our contemplative reflections on life and our place in it as we interact with our environments and those around us. Bravo and happy writing! Cheers!
