I wish I could say it all, for you to hear,
So I could recede my tears, during my prayers.
I wish I could amplify the groan,
for you to know.
So I could no longer fabricate my grief,
And you would no longer turn against me in disbelief.
This may sound shallow, I know,
But, my wounds run deep.
For they open and close,
And open again and more.
Without a structure,
And I’m seeking you out.
My friend, for a minor relief.
Please forgive me, If I seem deceptive,
The calluses crowd my eyes while I cry,
And they seem to cloud my perspectives.
But, I’m trying to stay afloat,
Like I’ve assured you multiple times before.
Although it truly is difficult to never be able to say ‘NO’,
It truly is breaking my hands as I try to keep rowing this boat.
I don’t ask for you to resonate on this,
For I don’t ever wish this upon anyone to be stuck to it as a nemesis.
I will rise again,
If now I’m constantly feeling like I am about to fall.
But, all I ask from you is to please know that there’s been built here, a wall.
I may never be able to say it all.

Hello, My name is Sowmya Krishna Kumar.
I work as an advanced analyst at my day job and then post I that switch roles to writer/poet. I found my passion for writing in 2016 and there’s been no looking back since then, having amassed over 300 poems/creative write-ups in my 5-stack used up journals/diaries. My dream is to work and grow in the publishing world. To walk closer to this dream, I undertook a certified experiential course in Editing and Publishing conducted by ‘Bound India (one of the budding publishing houses in India). My aim through my writing is to heal the world through the sheer power of words.
