Painful Poetry

I’ve been
Seeing him
For so many
Years now…

Only painful
Poetry
Comes out of him

All his poems
Drip with immense
Agony…

Not a single
Poesy of glee

I feel so pained
On reading his
Poetry…

As if the sun
Never shines
For him

As if the pain
Has blinded him
So much -
That he only sees
Darkness around him.

God, it melts me.
Doesn’t it melt your
Apathy?

Such a life
Full of endless
Misery,
You’ve given him
That he spits it out
In his everyday
Poetry…

That’s the only way
He copes with this
Unbearable pain.

God, give him
Some sunshine
Some rain…
Let him blossom again
So that he’s able to
Write at least
One poesy
Of glee.

Is it asking too
Much of thee?
I just want him
To be happy.
Won’t you heed
My plea?
Please release him
From this misery.

Comment It's obvious, Aparna Ji, you are not only a worthy poet and editor but also a symbol of compassion, empathy and caring. I am pretty sure the message goes to the fellow poet and he writes 'at least one poesy of glee' in time to come.
A nice poem.

Thanks for your soothing words, Flame Ji.

No names, please. I don't want him to feel self-conscious by publicising his name.

I just hope God answers my prayers and gives him some relief.
