It Hurts...



Thunderstorms in the corner of my heart,
Keep my eyes wet.
Few dabs of happiness here and there,
Don't make life blessed.
Often I count,
Looking outside the window at night.
How many wrong deeds I did?
That I fail to touch new heights.
Not even a single wish,
No wish has come true.
My fingers are all black,
Searching for happiness in the residue.
Not up in the ladder,
All I want is a place of some worth,
As when you don't get what you deserve,
It hurts.

  3. Yes Saru!,One shd not expect Apple standing under a Mango Tree.It always hurts when U don't get what U deserve.We shd change our expectations if we cannot change ppl to our expectations.This maximizes the minimum-assured Happiness.Luv it.Cheers.

  16. An impression of sad encounter,
    To feel hurt disharmony is aggravated,
    To ensure harmony, don't care for the opinions.

  24. " My fingers are all black,

    this line was freaking amazing man! SARU! :) :) :) WOW!

    ReplyDelete
  25. So many beautifully penned lines that I truly connected with emotionally ~ excellent writing, Saru and the perfect picture! I know how long the 'searching' process for that can be ;) Really loved this post, dear! :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. I believe there is a lot of desperation in the lines; it is indeed the character of desperation that adds beauty to this poem. A little desperation and a little appreciation is all that makes one's life. So, never bother about what u had deserved and always desire about what u will deserve in the unpredictable future.
    Nice poem.....really aroused me emotionally.

  34. So, I have started understanding your poems and have started liking new and different poems of the world... Thank you Saru :)

  35. it is so true that it hurts. but for a better living, to live out of pain or the sake of our loved ones, a way to only hide the eventual pain caused by this is - telling yourself and believing that "i expect nothing for myself for my good deeds. but yes, i expect to be put under pain for the wrong deeds". what i do is that. i too always know that what i have today is less than what i ought to have. but nevertheless, there is still time till the last breath. your good deeds may shine upon u not now, but when really at the time of need. maybe u should stop expecting something, only for a peaceful living, so that people who love u dont need to get hurt by seeing u in pain. and "not expecting" doesn't mean it doesn't exist, the pain. we can only hide it at the back our mind and heart, not touching it too often.

    but whatever u said was absolutely true. but u had that thought, and let it temporarily end there becoz the more u think about "being inadequately repay-ed for ur good deeds", the more it hurts. :|

    sorry if i talked too much.. but that is what i do to myself.. :|

    ReplyDelete
  36. "repay-ed" is too much BUSINESS like.. i take back the word. :D ;) :)
    its like "deserving". :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yeah sometimes it hurts, but always be positive...sooner or later we'll get what we deserve ! :)
    nicely expressed, a touching poem..

    ReplyDelete
  38. why so serious?

    but beautifully written Saru. we all go thru this n u've summed it up so well; and yes, it hurts!

  57. Of course life hurts. And that's good, in a lot of ways: 1) It makes us deeper human beings, sympathetic to others who are hurting, 2) It makes us tougher, more able to cope, 3) It can give birth to great creative work in literature and the arts (keep writing as well as reading good poetry), 4) It makes us more philosophical if and when we wonder whether we really 'deserved' what we haven't got, 4) When we have had enough of life and its doubtful pleasures, it leads us to seek release - call it moksha, nirvana, salvation, what you will - why should that age-old quest have suddenly become old fashioned just because we live in the age of instant noodles and Facebook?

    Forgive me if that sounded like a sermon: it comes naturally to someone who has been a teacher lifelong. But if it helps to make you feel a little less blue, it will have made my day!

  61. "As when you don't get what you deserve,
    It hurts." # This line sounds very synonymous to me. :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. It hurts. It definitely hurts when you don't get that small inch of care and affection you expect from that 'someone'. I always wonder if it is too much to expect a little bit of love from someone whom you love so much. I really don't know!!

  64. Saru, I can only add:

    "An unlucky toss may have a lucky spin-off."

    "What is, might be sad. What we make of it, never goes in vein."

    These two I had composed earlier in my blogging chronicles. Maybe in response to some similar emotions I was confronted with at the time.

    Cheers on your way!

  74. Saru ji.. what you say is true..it hurts and hurts a lot, specially when we feel that those who are going ahead of you got it easily... sometimes, as I read some where, God keeps us waiting, for some present, a gift... Even I am in the same position,, working my way to the start of the ladder of success... Just positive thinking..keeps me going...

    P.S. You have beautifully represented what I feel deep inside my heart, Thank you.

  83. Sharu , I am in pain yet again and stumbled upon this poem of urs... I can so relate to it... It hurts so much when u dont get even an inch of what u really deserve... I read something beautiful recently so wanna share it here...

    "Most relationships tend to fail not because of absence of love... Love is always present...Its just that one was being loved too much and the other wasn't being loved enough"...

    I am feeling this pain right now (that u must have felt when u wrote this poem).. and i convince my heart by saying its not our (your/my) loss... its the loss of the one who didn't understand our pristine love for them...because if someone can reject a beautiful and magnificent soul like ours (who are ready to give more and receive less and all they ask in return is a little bit love) then I am so convinced its completely their loss.. We will surely get what we deserve one day... its just a matter of keeping patience... :)

    i will be glad if what i just said reduces your pain (even a little bit)... it surely reduces mine.. :)

    1. Understanding love is very difficult. Those who value it, won't loose it. I agree with the lines you wrote it. I know how hard it is to go through that phase. Hope you feel better soon. Time is a big healer...

  84. Saru, this one's really touching! Loved it.
    I would just say that may be our thoughts are constrained and limited with the situation then. Sometimes we don't realise how things we were restrained from in the past actually served for our own good in our lives later on..that's the super power working at its best for us..looking at the bigger vision for our life!
    Even if it doesn't convince our hearts now, that's one of the best ways to move towards optimism.

    1. God is always there and above us. He knows what's good for us and he compensates us sometimes a little late. This poem reflects what we feel at that moment when we are hurt. No reasoning, no logic seems to work at that time. Thanks for speaking your heart here, Swatee....:)

  85. itz awesome!!! and about the "sadness" part- well... if v're happy everytym nd not sad ever, v'll never realise wat happiness is will we!! sadness is required 2 make us realize our happiness! dey dont conflict but support each oder! :D

  94. apt choice of words for the emotion so well captured...

    Hurt, I weep
    not knowing which choices to keep
    everything seems spiraling down
    and not enough strength to stand up on my own

    Alas it was time which gave me the strength
    to face the world
    to stand back on my own without help
