The Emotional Enigma

On the broken glass, his hopes walk
As another nightmare torments his weary brain.
But about his agony, he chooses not to talk
As he knows crying won’t decrease his pain.

There was a time when he was full of life
In his eyes there used to dribble silk woven dreams.
However, he was abandoned amidst fate’s unforgiving strife
& now his mind silently bleeds with a million screams.

But the eagle that conquers the skies
Doesn’t fear to rest on some fragile trees.
For on its wings the magisterial beast relies
& doesn’t bow in front of the life’s stormy breeze.

It matters not what’s his circumstance
Or what verdict is scribbled for him on the scroll.
Alone in darkness with his demons, he’s destined to dance
But no heavenly star burns brighter than his soul.

With his words that swell up with emotions
He stirs his aspirations that his heart has impearled.
& with his thoughts that are deeper than all oceans
In his mind’s inward eye he creates his own world.

The emotional enigma playfully begins to smirk
As not many know what the f*** he’s been through.
He’s heard by many when he goes berserk
But sadly, he’s truly understood only by few.


Note: This poem is dedicated to the people who have often found it easier to project a fake smile rather than express the true magnitude of their sorrow. Though this world isn’t meant for such beautiful selfless individuals & I know how sometimes others can’t appreciate the strength of your character… But please see yourself as the eagle that has its faith on its wings ( your capabilities) rather than the durability of the branch upon which it rests ( your situation). I urge my readers to be understanding & compassionate towards such silent warriors who often feel abandoned & lost even when they are surrounded by others around them. Every life is valuable & even a small act of kindness can create a massive positive change in someone else’s life. ❀

    Such honesty and passion. I also appreciate what you say below your incredibly descriptive poem. I was that person for so many years. Love you my brother. Have a beautiful evening and be blessed and please take care. Love πŸ’•πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜ Joni


    1. Yes sadly that’s what the world has come to but with this poem I hope to give the social space to troubled souls to openly cry and express themselves. Thank you for the compliment. πŸ™

    1. I personally don’t like to use cuss words in my verses but just thought it may have added to the intensity of the emotion there. Glad you felt that way. Thank you for the lovely feedback!


  3. Guess its all about time. A soul wants to be pampered. Like a irrestible cute child 😜😁
    Moreover he is in need of paneer tikka for which this emotional enigma has fallen upon him. 😊
    Stay Safe. Stay Healthy.

    1. Lol nah “mere paas Maa hai” πŸ˜‚.. so can get access to paneer tikka anytime really, but it wasn’t personally for myself it was something that I felt in general for other people in the society. There are times when people find it hard to share about their problems so with my words I hope to give them that social space to express themselves & in the process express that they too matter. 😊

      1. I’m offering emotional compassion to others. Who said I was offering paneer tikka to anyone? 😜 Even if someone is really close to me i can probably donate them my kidney rather than share my paneer tikka with them. (Like joey from the tv series friends) Sid doesn’t share food! πŸ€£πŸ˜‚

  4. Great poem Sidharth! When we look at social media, everyone shows only their best side, their best moments, and viewers cannot know what pain lies beneath what might be a facade of hope to some. Your poem beautifully captures this sentiment of masked sorrow hidden to the uninterested observer, and how one attempts to rise from that.

    1. Couldn’t have agreed more with you on how people hide their sorrow on social media. Just intended to express to those silent suffers that it’s okay to remove their mask and that their lives too matter. Thank you for your readership and support. πŸ˜ŠπŸ™
