Bury Me Deep..



Day and night I’ve wandered my thoughts,
Of what I did and what I lost:
Of things I couldn’t take control of-
Grieving about the Mistakes I didn’t make.

Often I do look back-
On the things that happened then,
Those which’ve scarred my memories;
Making my Life even bitter.

I see myself as humongous misfit!
A strange woman wanting to only “live”.
Yet I was pulled; yet up again-
Off my roots, where I’d stood submerged deep.

They say Roots stand a tree;
They make it’s head held up high,
It takes the water and the soil-
Feeding the sapling into a shadowy relief..

I am so sorry: my roots are dirty,
It’s slathered with all that I was buried in!
No matter how much I tried to clean them;
My feet remains covered with the past chronicle.

As I write this, I feel it’s time
For yet another de- rooting and mud slinging routine.
I’ll lose all my little buds those were about to spring,
Making me naked and vacuous again..

I’m losing my strength with each passing day-
Losing my hopes of a glorified survival.
I don’t wish to give up at all,
As I have germinated even in a desert..!!

I have nothing to offer right now!
If at all, I would want to stand clean,
Try and bear some fruits if possible:
Wanting my roots buried deep within..


Summary: Two wishes

  • I am wanting to sit stuck. Not moving anymore.
  • Keeping my Past buried for all times to come. I am not embarrassed at how things have been. Infact I am vocal about that. But it definitely hurts when one pulls up the half baked truths to cover up ones own faults!

    ‘my roots are dirty,
    Its slathered with all that I was buried in!’

    Very emotional; I can feel the frustration and hopelessness you must have been feeling when you wrote this. This is a good piece, that’s one good thing that came out of an ugly event in your life. Hope you feel better now!

    There seems to be a place for tears in this piece and yet you write with a sorrow concealed in it and make it beautiful in a way.

    This made me feel sad. Think I’ll hop on a plane and fly to wherever you are and give you a big hug…okay, a virtual hug. It takes a lifetime to grow into who we are.

    I think I can get behind what you are talking about. Due to the manner life comes at us, we are rarely prepared for decisions we have to make nor the repercussions. of them. Still, to keep getting up in the morning in the hope that this might finally be the morning everything works out is the only sign of hope, and what the fuck else we got? lol, love the poem,

    Well done, I am taken aback by how powerful and raw this piece is. You nailed it on the head though, sometimes the roots are not where they should be and prevent growth more than assist it. Another well done piece! Hope everything is well in your world my dear Olivia! Thanks for sharing.
