‘Heartache’

image_t6

Caustic heavy heart beat drumming in ears

The very choking breath full of fears

The restlessness, hopelessness, pain arise

Rubbing hands, Hollowness, tears in eyes

 

The severe agony thinking about the future

The regrets while peeking into the past

Eating my heart like beetles eat wood

Not letting me do, what I should !

 

The wish to have a wound on my body

The urge to scratch it hard with nails

That pain would kill the pain in heart

The blood would cause the heartache frail

Stepping singly on the graves of wishes

Each one arises and cause acute affliction

Somewhere deep down a part of heart itches

Takes me back to the endless expedition

The questions bubble into my mind

Like the sky with soft white clouds aligned

Am I bipolar , mystic ,Β schizophrenic , wacky brain ?

Or I am just having the ‘Heartache’ again.

  1. Loved this! I was walking through the store penning my own best seller when I finally “GOT IT” I relate to everything you said! The regrets while peeking into the past is an amazing line! YOU must keep writing!! Anyway as I was in the store yesterday, I got this overwhelming feeling to cry. Nothing new bad happening… in fact, a few morsels of good news came my way… but I was writing a scrip in my head… something I might say in the future… like:
    I could go to work and be animated and funny, kind and even fun… but when I would find myself alone with me…. and I would not have any distractions… just me and my thoughts… and this overwhelming heart ache would fill my senses… this total shot of regret… a lump in my throat… a pain so great I’d try to impulsively calm it. I guess in the same way a cutter cuts or a person with eating disorders does their things or maybe like an alcoholic or an addict drinks or uses… maybe shopping or in my case a connection with someone from my past who I can’t seem to disconnect from… and I understood mental health and illness more. The thing is…
    WE are NOT alone. The end of my script is still unwritten. It obviously needs that hook… of and then I found….. the cure, the miracle… God Himself (Which by the way I do believe… I just think He wants me to find the answer myself which will ultimately turn back to Him…) But I think it is a lesson even deeper. We all need to go back and find the pain. The kid inside us all and bring them home so the pain can begin to heal.
    Sorry!!!!
    I should have blogged this one myself.
    But you know you have a great poem when someone can write this much about what it brought out in them! πŸ˜‰
    Keep writing my friend!
    xoxo

    • Thank you so much sweety first of all you just memorized me with the thoughts you just shared !
      You know when I feel depression and pain I do the same…write the script in my head and write it down in the future and make it a post πŸ™‚ That is why all my poetry is sad I guess πŸ™‚
      I am sad you had these thoughts but at the same time I must say you have beautifully expressed them…..I loved your words !
      I think the same…God wants us to find all the answers…He helps us but we have to do the task.
      Lol You should really blog this one ! I love it and I am so glad you shared it to me….. I read it thrice !
      Yes I was wondering though is my poem capable of making someone say these beautiful things πŸ™‚
      Thank you so much your words are everything to me ! I will keep writing if you will be with me πŸ™‚
      Love you ! Hugs xx

  2. Well…White Pearl..I guess this quote is a good answer for you here too…Love Ya dear..let’s be crazy together with all our other crazy friends…!

    I had my Marilyn Monroe Shirt on last night when I went to see the Jobs movie…I was so happy and so unashamed to be crazy when I saw the movie that I whirled and twirled like a ballerina through Walmart @light speed if you will..up and down the aisles here and there and everywhere..I weigh about 210 lbs and AM ‘pretty light’ on my feet if you will..

    When I was singing and playing the piano for my Catholic Church choir for over 10 years I was also dancing in the youth of mating ritual for over 10 years too at a place called 2001 for disco freaks like me2 at that time through the 80’s to electronic music TOO with higher frequencies too for light and love…

    Yes I was acting crazy as hell…but the end EFFECT…is more people went home smiling at least once that day…yesterday and long a go when this crazy nerd danced like hell at 2001..that bar back then that was a relative lit up heaven of LIGHT and MUSICK!

    Pictures of me with my Marilyn Monroe shirt on my latest twitter feed..maybe for some more laughs HAhaHEhe..who knows maybe God is a laugh after ALL..and maybe it is a divine comedy…

    Only a crazy person would think that huhheh1!
    Maybe one day TIME WILL PROVE ME RIGHT TOO2!
    LOVE YA LIGHT WHITE PEARL SEE YA LATER….

    THIS IS THE QUOTE AT THE END OF THE MOVIE JOBS BY HIM…I follow every dot of every eye of this philosophy…

    Steve Paul Jobs:

    β€œHere’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently β€” they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

    • Lol It was nice reading about your movie experience πŸ˜‰ I guess it is fun sometimes to get crazy and dance πŸ˜‰
      I hope you get more fun and bring smiles on face faces πŸ™‚
      I haven’t opened my twitter for sometime I would see your pix now !
      Love the quote ! You are making me more and more convinced to watch the movie πŸ™‚

  5. AND well…EXCUSE me if a Hurricane of light and love comes ON a little too strong on your blog here now but hear know this video below is what my spirit looks like if it could be sea and see..you see..it has no gender no shape form but if it would..if it could..it would be this song..this video..this expression of passion energy light and love…

    The song and dance is by Olivia Newton John..I have no idea who made the video but it found me and it rang true for the spirit I experience as true…

    Sorry again.. you cannot see the video in Pakistan..but I will provide the lyrics again…here too…

    “Magic”

    Come take my hand
    You should know me
    I’ve always been in your mind
    You know that I’ll be kind
    I’ll be guiding you

    Building your dream
    Has to start now
    There’s no other road to take
    You won’t make a mistake
    I’ll be guiding you

    You have to believe we are magic
    Nothin’ can stand in our way
    You have to believe we are magic
    Don’t let your aim ever stray
    And if all your hopes survive
    Your destiny will arrive
    I’ll bring all your dreams alive
    For you

    From where I stand
    You are home free
    The planets align so rare
    There’s promise in the air
    And I’m guiding you

    Through every turn I’ll be near you
    I’ll come anytime you call
    I’ll catch you when you fall
    I’ll be guiding you

    You have to believe we are magic
    Nothin’ can stand in our way
    You have to believe we are magic
    Don’t let your aim ever stray
    And if all your hopes survive
    Your destiny will arrive
    I’ll bring all your dreams alive
    For you”

  7. A true masterpiece… all of my poems bow before this one… Very pure in flow of thoughts…

    “The wish to have a wound on my body

    The urge to scratch it hard with nails

    That pain would kill the pain in heart

    The blood would cause the heartache frail”

    Marvelous…. Simply magical…

    ======================================================================

    And here I try my bit…

    ======================================================================

    And far from your sight do I stand
    On the dry, barren, infertile land
    And far from your sight does my heart pain
    When trembling in agony, I see you again

    If I come running; will you wait for me?
    I will wear a smile on face, only for you to see
    I promise not to utter a word
    Though volumes I would wish to speak

    Will you accept my arms’ embrace
    As we quietly meet face to face?
    And then not the bodies but hearts would speak
    Sharing the agony, together would they weep

    Oh my heart, are you so strong?
    To quench the sorrow, absorb the wrong?
    You who has bathed in joy for long
    Will you swing in the melody of a sad song?

    Oh dissolve the agony, vanish the pain
    Fear not you silly, do not refrain
    As her fear is what you have come to defeat
    Take away the bitter sorrow, give her the joy sweet

    For long has she bled with her aching heart
    But now peace must come; agony must depart
    And she too must find a future bright
    And bath in the lake of joy without fright…

    • Arindam…. Listening such an appreciation from you mean something really big to me ! I have always said I learn from you…You are my teacher. So my poems can bow before your one’s…There is no vice versa ! You are kind enough to say that and you don’t know what I felt in my heart reading it πŸ™‚ THANK YOU for this !
      And…..
      Arindam….. You are a true master of poetry !!!
      How can you create this excellent poetry in response to whatever I write ? Really I am impressed badly by you now πŸ™‚
      Your poem is far far Wonderful than mine….. Love all the lines !
      You know what…I cried while reading it ! I can’t express my appreciation for it with words…You must feel it !
      I have wished all my life for someone to understand me like this….and say the same healing words to me…. I just needed words…. Nothing else…But I was unlucky enough !
      THANK YOU so much for this Yaar …. !!
      A real BIG THANKS ….. πŸ™‚
      Love you bro ! You have earned much more love and respect in my heart for you !

      • There is definitely a vice versa. It is the sheer quality of the poem that matters and not the author. You see, the beauty of a masterpiece does not depend on its creator!

        In an earlier comment also (in response to cabrogal) I had said that the fact that I respond to some poems in poems has to be attributed to the author of the poem. A poetic response just simultaneously flows and is never created by hand (for example, this poem was written in 10 minutes).

        My belief is that poems are nothing but pure emotions. Every poem is written when a person is emotionally immersed in the flow of thoughts. In that case, I consider writing poetic responses becomes very easy if the original poem is a pure flow of emotions.

        So in a nutshell it is you who is responsible for the beauty of the response and not me. Your clarity of expression of thoughts is marvelous.

        πŸ™‚ Chal… ab to unlucky nahin rahi na… ab rona band kar

        You wanted to understand the secret of my poetry na… It is simple… Feel the emotion on which you would write. Feel it desperately… So desperately that at a point in time you become the emotion itself… And then the words flow out… (Ab jaake ‘Dancing in Madness” padh…)

        Remember… I will always be there to understand you… unconditionally… after all you have called me your brother πŸ™‚

      • Feel the emotion on which you would write. Feel it desperately… So desperately that at a point in time you become the emotion itself… And then the words flow out…

        But alas, that is precisely when words are completely inadequate.

      • True… That is precisely why I say that poem is not a collection of words. It is purely emotional outburst with the words as their carriers…

      • It is purely emotional outburst with the words as their carriers…

        A sort of psychic sneeze?

        “Language is a virus” – Laurie Anderson

      • It definitely depends on the Creator πŸ˜‰ If you won’t be that beautiful from inside , you won’t be writing that beautiful poems …
        You are right…poems are emotions…and I always feel the sad emotions , desperately so my poetry is always sad πŸ™‚ I wonder how can people feel happiness too like this ! I never did.
        You created this in 10 mins ? You are just making me impress more ! πŸ˜‰
        Thank you…. I have these two words only, which probably can’t show how Grateful I am…

    Reply
  23. Very nice, but do have some questions for you. Do you think heartache is based on unrequited desire, and is inevitable for everyone ? And whatever it may be, do you think one just has to live with it, or overcome it, or actually find fulfillment ? And is that possible only on a one-to-one basis ? And does it happen by luck, chance, destiny, or by sincerely working towards it ?
    Aah, your verse induced me to think you are one great Yogi. But you could still have a go at the answers.

    Reply
    • Thank you ! πŸ™‚
      I don’t know about people…I just know about me. Yes it sometimes come from unrequited desires and is inevitable for me….
      I am living with it….I am not able to overcome it and I never found fulfillment….But I am living with it…
      I don’t know exactly what do you mean by one to one basis…
      And it happens sometimes due to luck sometimes due to destiny fate and sometimes it comes to you because you want it to come…you wish for it and you never try to get out of it…..
      I am not a yogi nor do I ave answers…..My answers may be rubbish…or may strike your mind …but I don’t think I am able enough to give you answers…..
      I appreciate your presence…as always sir and pardon me for being absent for so long…..
