Oblivion

Oblivion

A Poem by Inaya Khan

For a while it was all hazy
Like the winter mornings
Covered thick in fog.
The need for warmth raw,
Yet my vision distressed.
Then, came the moment of clarity
But alas! The soul chose denial
Every scar was taken as an inscription
Every wound, as a birthmark
Perhaps if I'd looked deeper,
A little closer,
I'd have saved myself from much grief
Had I shunned myself from the claws of desire,
And protected myself from oblivion!

This was a very fine read. I could almost physically feel the little things in this poem; your use of imagery was stellar, and the narrative in this hits extremely close to home for me! A fine read, and a very good write. :)

No problem, Inaya (amazing name, by the way).
I will do, and the same goes for yourself. :)

Writing, for me is when I'm in the state of extremes of any emotion- depression, happiness, anger, joy. It just strikes. Next thing I want is a pen and paper and I'm good to go. Life gives me a lot.. more..
