Knots

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay
"

Spontaneous write.

"


I tied a knot 

around the corners 

of my heart


for each thing 

 left unsaid 

   between us ...

Author's Note

Dr. YumnaKay
Why do words spill on the page more spontaneously than when we want to really give them a voice verbally?...
Sometimes, it's frustrating getting it out for fear of hurting the other by our words...

as You say sometimes it's the fear of hurting someone, and sometimes it's our own fear from the response we might get, specially from those we love, and whatever the reason might be, it's a truth that writing it down is easier for us than to saying it.

A million knots would still not be enough.

Your author's note is spot on.

Thank you so much for reading. I agree to your words here. Appreciated.
Huh this is interesting. The use of tying your heart to keep it together sounds intense. In a good way! I wonder perhaps those words you want to speak you might be tying to your heart as well? Maybe let loose and speak what your heart says to ;) that would probably turn out or the best... But that's just my thoughts. A nice poem yumna, much enjoyed!

Spontaneous can sometimes be far more revealing. This is one of those occasions. Nicely expressed, and I felt both pain and regret here. Brevity working at its best Dr Y.

You are welcome :)
I felt this one. The pain of what could have been, of what was too difficult. Very powerful, untold story packed into this short poem. Well done, Yumna.

My heart says I wish I could tell you every truth...my knowing says I can only tell you the truths you are ready to hear.
