Still

Still the disappointment isn’t too far away
Still the body aches at times
Still the mind wanders towards hurt
Still the nights are spent on back
Still the mouth is fed by hands strange

Still the clouds turn grey in the day
Still the calm seas are perturbed time and again
Still the trees are shaken down to the roots
Still the roads are company unknown
Still the windows are the only escape

Still the life is far away
Still the nights alone I fear
Still the soul is locked in a Room
Still only the mind can wander
Still the open doors show an alien world

Still there are miles to cover
Still the pain is borne with fists clenched
Still there are smiles to be flashed
Still the struggles have to be made
Still the life is to be lived with pain.

    1. Strange = Not mine.. (Strange to my mouth). Never too easy eating of someone else’s hand
      Was being fed by others (read mom or mausi) until very recently… Started eating myself only 2-3 days back..

  1. your mom and mausi were in hydbd recently or you had gone?
    btw I “still” enjoy eating from Mom’s hands🙂

  2. “Still there are miles to cover
    Still the pain is borne with fists clenched
    Still there are smiles to be flashed
    Still the struggles have to be made
    Still the life is to be lived with pain.”

    This stanza started with Hope, then determination, then optimism , then worry and finally ended with give-up attitude.. confused or what ??
    time will pass by and with time everything too…
    Take care!

    1. Its just the way you look at the lines and what you have in your mind which changes the meaning of the lines… Perhaps the most b’ful part of poetry
      for me the meanings would be…

      Still there are miles to cover – Long time to pass/long distance to cover before being normal
      Still the pain is borne with fists clenched – Determination/normal reacn when you are forced to bear extreme pain…
      Still there are smiles to be flashed – Fake smiles to be flashed to assure people about my well being while not everything is well inside.
      Still the struggles have to be made – I guess self explanatory…🙂
      Still the life is to be lived with pain – not give up attitude but acceptance of fact and truth.
