darkness is all around

the feeling of getting drowned hits me

I try to kick and  float

but in vain

I want to break free

but know the time has not yet arrived

I have to grow inside to be free

I am tied in my own self

immersed in the womb of pain

searching for love to keep afloat


  1. Love is one kind of life boat, but so is enlightenment! Or, as your poem suggests, baby steps toward truth. Thank you for this lovely poem!

  2. waiting for that glimpse of light, life & love...beautiful Arathi :)

  3. hmmm you really build that sense of drowning and grappling for the life ring (or love ring)
