A Poem by Shuchita

Getting hurt is my drug,

And writing is my cure.

Indeed. We are more compelled to write when we're hurt rather than when we're happy. And when we're in pain, or wanted something inside of us to come out, we write.

thank you!
Opens up so many questions for me.

Is the hurt self inflicted?
Is the hurt from broken relationships?
Getting hurt suggests being the recipient rather than the cause.
Is the pain physical or emotional?
Pain can be an addiction, but pain is not a drug.
There is no cure for a drug although there are antidotes.
Is writing really a cure or an escape.
Does the escape become an addiction
does the journey begin again…

It’s like one of those Russian dolls.

thank you for reading and reviewing
this one caught my attention in my requests. I apologize i haven't been looking at them, but I've been really busy and distracted. This poem is simple, and it is honestly refreshing. I feel like the meaning is really complex. I 'm still trying to figure it out. ok I get it. What it means to me is just the feeling of relief that comes from writing.

The more I read these two lines, the more I like them. They started a train of thought and at the end, I was surprised by how much I could relate to them. Really nice work!

Interesting twist around...indeed :) A Poet can verse tragedy as poignantly as love, quite a balance :)

I agree with you because way back then I used to hurt my self and I came to the point wherein I actually committed suicide but when I was hooked up writing I overcome my habit of self harm . good work keep it up and thank you for sharing your thoughts with us
