An Emptiness - Poem by Jaishree Nair

She felt sore...
Lonely and desolate...
The heat unbearable
Had a tiff with her sister
Emotional replay of the verbal conflict
On and on and on.........

Understanding was her sister's nature....
Now why this clear misunderstanding......? ? ? ?
Verbal intelligence the other's weapon
Left her wounded and bleeding

As usual the calls exchanged
But the undercurrent note
Of subtle tone variation
As clear as crystal

Haunted by the feeling
Of hollowness deep inside
When loved ones act
Aloof and detached

She felt her side is justified...
But her sister is right too...
No one is at fault...
Who should make amendments.....? ? ?
Her sister will never feel the hurt
As she is amidst many
But she thought-'Iam the weaker....
Feeling.......; hurting....... lamenting.....'

Relationship is not so fragile;
To be shattered in seconds!

If only one steps forward..........

Until then............This emptiness....! ! ! ! !

    When some misunderstanding arises between loved ones, especially between siblings, it can create an wound! It will heal very fast, but the scar may remain for some more time! Remeber, only our close ones can really pain us! The notes of disharmony that can naturally arise from time to time in a relatioship is beautifully resonated in this poem! (Report)Reply

    Touching poem. Both sides are at fault here. Generally, we call this sulking and it happens due to the pain body we all carry with us from the haunting past. Eckhart Tolle has analyzed this phenomenon well in his books. Thanks for sharing this. (Report)Reply

    This is a wonderful poem of conflict with family but having understanding too, yet still having that suffering. Well done. (Report)Reply
