My Defenses
AS (22nd april 1986 / yanbu, saudi arabia)

My Defenses

In my world of calm acceptance
of all wrong and misery
arrive a few words.
They taunt me, question me,
my passiveness.
Oh go away, you give me hope;
you bring light,
and sweetness.
They brush only my surface,
but how it burns.
You say there are better things,
that my mistakes can be overcome.
That i can love without
the knowledge of hurt.
Go away, let me respect you.
dont show me dreams of hope
my soul is too weak
to face another.

ur first poem thats out n out cool way to go babe *muahs*
I am not sure I agree with the comments from other people on this poem. This poem is not about hurt and pain. It is not about misery. It is about a person who has suddenly found hope in life after a long time and doesnt know how to handle it. She is overjoyed, she is filled with anticipation, however she fears that her happiness will be dashed like before and she is trying to temper her feelings so that she doesnt get hurt again. Nevertheless this is a poem of happiness- a breaking down of her self imposed defenses and she is liking it.
a feeling of hurt and pain pervades in the mind of the reader.nice poem
It's a miserable feeling to have your hopes dashed, sometimes it's impossible not to feel this way. Great write, Arundhati! ! Brian
