Wounded freedom






Photo by Puvi Joshi (Mint Icetea Photography)


You chain me emotionally
and make me live my life your way
You clip my wings
and expect me to soar away

You make me dependent on you
and then suddenly leave me in the mid-way
Is this fair on your part?
Am I the puppet in your play?

You put boundaries around me
and ask me to behave like a free spirit
Sometimes, I wonder is this really my life
Am I really living in it?

Nice one! Being independent is such a bliss!!:)

Anjan Roy said...

This is the problem...one person gives himself/herself to the other person completely...they loose their originality...!!!

Brendan Dabhi said...

It's a very emotional sentiment, the tying up, the bondage.

Sadia Khan said...

So true! Some people like to captivate the person they love...and when the other person gets emotionally dependent on them...they ditch...heartless on their part, but the pain is only known to the person who suffers, being weak and wounded..

We all go through these sort of phases...well written

R.Vyas said...

Beautiful and expressive..I can relate to this :)

love is vengeance... smothers and soothe ..makes you bondage ... but a willing one ... so much that the absence of captivity is unbearable.. its a strange feeling ..
its love which has its norms to keep falling in it..
as usual you express love and its aspects like wizard.. and its always a pleasure reading you Valli !!

Somehow we human beings - the social animals cant live independently...but living independently is a bliss!!!

Jyoti Mishra said...

emotional
உயிரோவியக் கவிதைத் தந்தாய்
உணர்வால் கட்டிப்போட்டாய்
உள்ளத்தால் உன்னை தொடரச் செய்தாய்

Sankara Jayanth said...

simply loved it. it is one of the few things that happens with some people that really hurts them, curbs their freedom and greatness! beautifully expressed anguish.

So easy to relate. We often start to live the way someone else wants us to, and then we are taken for granted. Well written :)
