Just when


Just when

I thought it was enough, I felt another blow
This is a secret, something happened when I was just sixteen
I thought then, the world would give me something back
Some good would come, you never know…

All that happened is I  grew older
Less able to see past old men or broken dolls
As though the scar above my eye was enlightenment
I could see more clearly blinded

Into the white whirlpool, the constant churn
Of this dumbshow,  but oh!
I don’t believe it brought me any benediction
Or special deal because, more shit happened

sooner or later

My pen on paper, always scratching
I told you so….

    Poetry indeed ! You are so subtle in your expressions. Hence it hits so hard. Amazing writing. It says a lot more than ” I told you so “
