fatigue, my friend

fatigue, my friend

A Poem by poddar kushal

Fatigue, my friend!



Fatigue is a friend I owe my life.

Closed mind sometimes likes to take a stride

With its hand held in hand, amid trees.

Fatigue is used to sit on cold benches.

Ambitious sun working in shadows…

Talkative we are not, dust settles

On the spread of pasture of silence.

At last fatigue coughs to end a span

While I return to a waiting day

 I can see fatigue is petering

Still without any thing to say…

clever work...humanizing a human emotion that we rarely consider as a muse.
"Still without any thing to say�"

as one inflicted with chronic fatigue, i must say that it is definitely a coin with two sides: it is crippling, inhibitive, and a cruel taskmaster; and yet it is a call to rest, to shrug off the screaming urgency of the miniscule daily tasks and surrender to the charm and needful sleep. so there are days like today, where i can say yes, fatigue can be a friend. to drift through life with a closed mind, not dwelling or thinking or choosing, now that is rest. i feel this is well done and very relatable to everyone at one time or another.

Fatigue has a major effect on how we live. I can tell you know the power of getting rest. Very descriptive!

Interesting thought processes at work here. I'm finding myself wanting to know what inspired you to write this one. It's an invoking piece.

That is really something to meditate upon. I have never spent much time thinking about fatigue... I usually just feel it. LOL Wonderful thought provoking work. Thank you for sharing this.

That was a fatiguing read. :) Just kidding. I like this. Never really viewed it as a friend. Well crafted.
