Of all the emotions sorrow is my favorite





Girl silhouette


Of all the emotions
sorrow is my favorite
I would give it five stars
if I could rate

A feeling so heavy
A feeling burning down my chest
A pain that punctures my heart all over
and doesn't allow me to rest

A lump that catches my throat
and won't let me speak
A dark embrace filled with fears and worries
locking me in and making me weak

A drug which has its effect
for longer period than fleeting joy
A bittersweet addiction
I love to enjoy

A longing companion
which doesn't get off so easily
A trigger that shoots out
my skills in poetry

With a heavy breath, it makes me sigh
it reminds me that I am still alive!
I guess I'm one strange crazy poetess who
could feel happiness in sorrow too!

wonderful poetry Valli.

Panchali said...

What an interesting poem, Valli. Sorrow is a feeling of melancholy which is a deep emotion, and it becomes a dirge without acknowledgement. Lovely...
Came here after a long time. Have been a little inactive. Now, I plan to read all the posts I missed...:))

true it is a drug... that only writers, poets and poetesses get mesmerized by its effect.. harmless..

'Sorrow' is one toxic...but what's the delight of happiness without it!! :)

Clifford Rasquinha said...

That's a very unique and interesting take on sorrow. If you feel happiness in sorrow then how do you differentiate the two?

the little princess said...

very few people cherish sorrow, but there is a saying that if you do not cherish sorrow, you will not know how to cherish happiness.....that's a lovely line of thought Valli.

Second last verse is so true. It is indeed a powerful emotion. Beautiful poem.

I read somewhere that the thing about pain...it demands to be felt...
i guess.. sorrow is a strong emotion.. we can never part with it..
it just stays
