Miss Understood

This is for you Nandita.

Miss Understood

.

Pearls of white tears
moisten her tender cheeks
cascading onto dark pages
penning words of life and love.
Mirrors fail to reflect her light
as the world responds to her affections
with green venom and thunderbolts.
Bent but never broken
she remains a mystery for so many
even as she fails to decode herself.
Unable to decipher her puzzles 
she is forever trapped in a poetic web
entangled in an endless soliloquy.
Bleeding love and empathy onto pages
‘til she can barely live or write
or love herself anymore.
Seeking refuge in her shadow
and behind a broken smile
she longs to hurt no more.
She questions destiny
will her words, her love, her life, herself
ever be an enigma finally resolved.
Or will she forever be
Miss Understood.
My indigo child of love

  2. it’s really hard to find people who understand. i really related to this piece, as of recently i’ve been hesitant to open up to any one BECAUSE people don’t seem to understand or they prefer the idea of me that they have.

    1. Blogging and writing are all about opening oneself up and displaying ourselves to the world. I am touched that you relatd to this piece. I am sorry if you have been misunderstood or underappreciated. As for the idea people have of you don’t worry about it, you will never have control of that. What is important is the idea you have of yourself. If we live our lives to please others, we will never truly find happiness.

      I will read and comment on your posts. This blogging experience should be wonderful journey; I will do my part to make sure yours is. Be happy. Be well.

  3. This is my favourite poem of yours! These lines:
    ‘she remains a mystery for so many
    even as she fails to decode herself.
    Unable to decipher her puzzles
    she is forever trapped in a poetic web’

    They really resonate with me. I feel as though I am a mystery to myself at times and unable to decipher my puzzles. You penned this poem so beautifully and your use of words is inspirational. You make me want to push to be a better poet and writer!

    1. You are so kind. I am thrilled this resonated with you. Although I wish a positive write would have been better to relate to., Many of us spend our lives searching for the person within,

      I liked those lines as well. Your comments made me so happy. Thank you so much. I appreciate every words.

  4. Reblogged this on By the Mighty Mumford and commented:
    PASSIONATELY INTENSE—HIGH-SPIRITED DEFENSE—POETRY WITH A STRONG SENSE—OF LOVE! THIS POET IS WILLING (OR THE ONE SPEAKING WITHIN THE POEM) TO STAND IN THE GAP AND TO COURAGEOUSLY WHACK AWAY WITH HIS ROMANTIC BROADSWORD…TO DEFEND HIS HIGHLY PRIZED RELATIONSHIP WITH THIS GIRL….(AM i CLOSE? )

    1. Lol John. Yes the speaker in the poem is willing to do anything and everything to protect her and to help her find peace within herself. Happy you liked this. Thanks for the reblog. Thanks for the great comments. I appreciate it.

  5. she is…an enigma to herself…while being attacked. Perhaps more than a friendship is here? If he could ride a charger–he’d be on one! And how does the girl feel about all this? i really like it–please forgive me if I analyse too much. It can be safer and more productive than a shallow “attaboy!”.

  6. Andrew, I’m going to have to stop commenting on your posts just now because you manage to leave me speechless with every word you pen.
