I wish I didn’t have to write.

I wish I didn’t have to write
about the pains I suffer,
the feelings I hide inside,
the hurt I never talk about,
and the battles I couldn’t fight.

I wish I didn’t have to write
about the journey of ours,
the nights I cried,
the heartbreaks I felt so far,
and the distress inside my mind.

I wish I didn’t have to write
about the burden inside my heart,
the broken dreams of mine,
the grief of us being apart,
and the reality of me not being fine.

I wish I didn’t have to write
about the miseries of this world,
the hurdles I face,
the love I couldn’t forget,
and the scars I couldn’t embrace.

  1. Sometimes we wish not to write about certain things. But when we do it makes writing so beautiful because we’ve experienced our writing. And it also becomes a mark for lessons learned and a platform for voices to be heard.
    Love the poem 💚

  2. It feels like feelings are like this endless sea in which people drown. But you don’t worry. You’re poem is beautifully written and relatable. I believe it’ll be fine someday. Also I’m here for you.💕

  3. I wish I didn’t have to write
    About the people we’ve lost amid Covid-19,
    I wish I didn’t have to write
    Of the job losses the pandemic brought,
    I wish I didn’t have to write
    Of the inequality in the society we live in,
    I wish I didn’t have to write at all.
