As I Write These Words

By Meher Gandhi

My stomach feels it again-

The twitch, the knot.

My head swirls again,

In the midst of everything I forgot.


And, as I write these words,

This paper seems to be breathing again;

Taking in all the emotions untouched,

Breathing out all the pain.


Sadness and despair aren’t sins.

Broken dreams often prick like pins.

I still curl my lips into a smile I can bear,

For I know, gloom denies to hold tight for only one’s share.


I can see happy clouds.

But, don’t they sadly block the rays?

Rays which instil hope and light rays which fall loud?

On seeing them, how do I smile, anyway?


Looking beyond the unforeseen,

I am talking of the foretold.

Sun will be born again,

Stars will once more draw the chains.


This ink is giving itself shapes on paper,

Which I daresay, my heart recognizes.

This ink running like blood had once stopped midway,

But, that is a story to be told some other day.

Found this poem nice? Then, like, comment and share!

Check out my previous post here.

With love,

Hello to all the readers and writers out here! I am Meher Gandhi. I am a dreamer and a wanderer, dreaming of a world made of words and wandering in a land of my own scribblings. I am constantly scribbling my reveries and all the secrets I unearth while living, sometimes it’s on paper, most of the times, it’s mental notes. WordPress is a great platform to showcase the art of writing be it on the spot or else. I am loving this work of writing blogs, reading your blogs, commenting on them, receiving the likes, comments and valuable suggestions. It is all so fun! I am a teenager who loves to read and write. I am a positive person and so are my scribblings. If you want to connect with me then, head over to the contact page in the “my pages” section! Would you like to join me in for a walk in my land of scribblings? With love, Meher.
