SORROW – MOST PRIVATE AFFAIR

I am not complaining either

As you are not also

One that Liveth

He/She that Loveth

Has had his share of sorrow

The one that one shall not share

As deep in Heart its hidden

One would heck to know

Would want to measure

Could anyone find the device?

Of the sea of tears, pain and displeasure

You imagined it

 You created it

You formed it

For the sake of Love

For the Heck of it

But dear Sorrow

Has been part of Life

Yes its been So

Who is going to Stop anyway

I know you Suffer

I know you are also Sorrowful

To share

You would not want

I would also not

We have kept the world out of it to reach

As everyone has this affair in Private

All only for themselves

Would not want to show the world

Living life’s journey

In their own Music

Let it go back in the muds

No bother it shall remain

In the sands of Time

Yes it is Your Private affair

Yes it is My Private affair

    This is a lovely poem Shiva. But I feel it is only human to share ones sorrow to hide it away is to swallow it down and suffer silently when no true friend or or loved one would want that. Did I miss the point of your poetry?

      All sorrows are privately kept by all.
      They are neither hidden nor swallowed down.
      How much so ever you try to share it, it cannot be fully shared. In the first place why should there be any sorrow a.t all if there were true friends and lovers. I think this is where you have missed.
      It might also be so that from one angle a good hearted human would want to share happiness only. Instead of posing a sad face always.
      Its Love love love.

          Till today I have not come to know your name as I always love to address one by their first name that makes one close to Heart.If you would want to keep it as so I shall call you by what you have preferred.
          Everyone has to live in the real world which is not real as it seems to be.(Read my Haiku Just a Screen) What to do my brush paints so and it starts looking rosy.
          Thanks so much for the Love and Roses you have showered on me, let them be as fresh always as they have come through your heart.

      I visited your blog posts and have liked them I even visited your friend “Almost Farmgirl” and have followed her also.
      As right now I cant comment on your blog I am posting the comment here.
      You have been a very hardworking farmgirl which the profession requires, you have been an inspiration to all people in the world who accepts this as their livelihood.
      I am impressed by the last para of one of your posts which I copy and paste it here for others to read and get inspired.
      “Here’s the thing: I learned that work isn’t something to be dreaded, but something to be embraced. I realized that self-worth is developed through accomplishment—doing something, whatever it may be, and doing it well and with enthusiasm.”

    Wow Shiva that gave me chills!! How beautifully expressed. The pictures are so thought-provoking on their own and your words really capture Sorrow. We all do experience sorrow in our own ways and it is comforting to have others there to help us thru but we have to come out the other side on our own, in our own time. I think this is one of your best poem’s yet!! It has so many layers, I keep reading it again and again and I just love it!!

      It was so pleasant to receive you here after a long time.
      I feel you never ever feel guilty about it. The burden part what you say is true and that is why we tend not to share it. I think how much so ever you download it on others you cannot do it fully as they also cannot receive it completely.
      Only if you want it you can share it , if only you feel it shall lessen your agony. Or else as it is already private.
