Journey to Inner self

This excruciatingly beautiful poem which I am publishing today is written by Miss Purvasha Das, she right now lives in USA and is stuck there due to this pandemic. Actually, I never met her, this poem was sent to me by her lovely mother once upon a time who is my employer at work. Both the mother and daughter are lovely.


A fear creeps in as I see you in my mirror,

I can no more frame you in painted walls of my heart.

you have started shadowing my lone wolf trails.

I sleep watching us signing cards,

Only to wake up to a dream behind retired frosted windows,

reminiscing your printed lost smile.

Should I break free in your waters or break down to your last quote?

Should I let the mirage be all of me or let the beating vein consume?

I have become a doubt walking through the riddled roads.

I have been ricocheting between my own pockets of unsaturated vices,

bolted behind imposing virtues.

I am a shot less drunk on you,

For I might order a wreckage for a payment.

I am one obvious truth away from you,

For I have been shrouding my tracks to you

Believing a lie that it would fade one day.

I am a confession short to you,

That I wish to be a prayer fulfilled with you.

    Beautiful poem and so heart wrenching. Sometimes we do struggle with putting on a facade everyday and keep our true selves hidden from the world. This poem resonates with me. I know there is a different person within me, wanting to break free and live the life she has always dreamed of.

    It is truly a very heartwarming and genuinely emotional poem. Keep on sharing this kind of artistic piece.

  23. That could be a tough yet the most beautiful journey. Love the words that you’ve been written. It’s great!

  24. this poem is very deep. Partly, I think of this as moving on and moving forward (love matter), as the writer is trying to remove a certain part from her heart. it could also be moving on from a former self. nevertheless, only the writer knows the real meaning of this poem. what’s important is she’s able to express herself and let it out… 🙂

    Powerful words used. If I can understand the thoughts correctly, I feel the poet is trying to recover from the past and is in a dilemma which path to select for attaining peace. I maybe wrong.
