When I was a teen I used to write a lot of poetry, as I grew up I still wrote but not as much. I just wanted to share something with you. Tell me what you think:
“He said I’m beautiful
He said I’m kind hearted
He said I’m a free spirit
He’s not you
I can’t tell you how I feel
But I want you to know the feelings are so real
Amazing things could happen
Just come to me and listen
Here I am writing you a love song
Kinda wondering if I’ll ever be able to sing it to you
Kinda wondering if you will ever hear the words
You make me smile
From the inside
No one understands me
Like you do
Take my hand and hold me tight
You’ll never be alone
Just hear my words
Wondering all day long
Wondering all day and singing this song
Until then I’ll just sing the words to myself, wishing it was you that
Said I was beautiful
You that said I’m kind hearted
You that said I’m a free spirit
You that said……you loved me

I like it. Very smart and complex.Think we can all empathise being unable to say what we really want to to that special someone.
I think its very good. Touching. You should contribute to my project. I’m bringing together desi (women) poets, story tellers, etc. for a compilation we’re hoping to publish (not for profit). You would be welcome to participate Priya.
Rohini I would love to! let me know details
Sun – def, I wrote this when I was younger so who knowes what I was feeling but yeah I have been there and ot the t shirt of not being able to tell someone how you feel. Best thing is to tell them…it can only go two ways right? x
Absolutely. Nothing to lose and everything to gain. Abit sexist how its a womens only compilation Rohini. Emphasis should be on quality not gender.
Sun- the world is a bit sexist to the detriment of women. I think the world can suffer a women’s compilation, don’t you? Women have plenty of quality to offer.
Women have the most quality to offer the world but women aren’t the only ones who feel emotion and suffer repression. No need to feel hard done by in this day and age.
But a womens only compilation would be v inciteful and I would love to read it.
