in the throe of things

one day
two day
three day
one more day and il be on the floor…

stop it now
stop it later
is running through my mind
no use running and i tried to hide…

Then peeping through the curtain in my dark and dingy room
i see
a ray of golden sunshine
it warms my heart and warms my soul
and i know il climb out of this hole…

For my obsession is too much
it revolves around my head
and keeps me in the throes of my sheets
and wrapped up in bed….

because… i do like you, i do you like you today.

ah my love, what have you done to me…

what a powerful devastating thing love is.

    I just watched the last episode forever of “ugly betty” and I was crying my eyes out.. all happy endings.. it was about change and life and fear and going for it and loss and well…. life my darling Fiona.. this is an amazing poem and I would love for you to join VaVoom so that I can feature this. I am familiar with every line and find this quite loving and true and brilliant.

  • hahaha! ah thanks my dear Linaji! :) i am honoured! ah Ugly Betty has such good meanings behind the episodes! this poem is such a mixture of emotions, i think thats what love does to you, it throes you.. :) x

    what I really like about your writing is that even if you’re writing about dark emotions and sadness and difficulty, I can still taste optimism and joy… your emotions come through but also your spirit, and light. And that is one of the reasons why I enjoy reading your writing :)
