Depersonalization.

Depersonalization.

A Poem by Simran Kewlani
"

The soul detaches itself from the body.

"
I often wondered what being blank felt like,
A blank paper, board or even mind,
Was it nice and serene or loud and unclear? Would it give me peace or only crave for the quiet longer?

A strange sensation rooted in my mind and extended towards the rest  of my body,
In that moment, every cell received the same message; perhaps no message,
Complete silence enveloped my body, feeling serene- at peace finally.

A silence so rare, so pure soon started to make me feel claustrophobic,
I could hear my mind trying to escape, the noiseless screams going unheard by the rest of my cells,
It was too much, too less to take in and all I could see was darkness, the eerie darkness which only made it more quiet.

I could feel myself floating away from myself, losing touch with humanity- my human,
The distance just kept on increasing, only making me more and more numb,
A little scream escaped, too little too late, it went unnoticed by the others and I simply disappeared.

Succumbed to the darkness, I drowned in the darkest of the oceans, no scream no plea for help,
I felt so much at peace, the path so painstakingly slow and noiseless,
The heaven personified goal made the path worth it, quiet but worth it.

……Hush now, the next one is on its way.

Wow... I haven't read your work in a while... what a poem to come back to... really excellent work... I think of two things, how it would be like to go back to childhood, would I still make the same decisions or mistakes. Also I think of how it can be good to be on your own for a while to reboot and better your perspectives on life.

They say to try and touch the untouchable giving it it's own reality, when really there's nothing there at all. Today I was thinking how I would like to spread myself like butter over the veils of the universe - every last millimetre of it, but then I realised the unme is already there.

hello you! Nice to see you would love to hear what's happening your side.

Whilst, you know me, I love the topic of your poem, I would like to see you begin not so much as to lay all your cards out on the table when writing poetry, but start, especially with the subject matter, dealing with the ethereal. Instead of letting the reader know exactly what is happening, leave the door open to interpretation. You can do this uning metaphors.Question - how can your reword the very first line? It's too straight forward and this is not poetry ... think in the language of Rumi or Kabir or Swami Vivekananda ... read their words and notice how the allude to things, it's in the alluding you keep the door right open, and when it's open you can let the magic in.
