I Love my Sips of Sorrow

Reading Time: 1 minute

A lyrical poem by Arun, that’s inward-looking, in Different Truths.

I love my sips of sorrow

For, when they get in,

They engulf me in a cocoon

That happiness must sweat

To break.


I love my sips of sorrow

For, they send me to a trance

And help me have

Soulful talks with my estranged self, thus

Assembling the motley of selves in me.


I love my sips of sorrow

For they enrich me with tears

Helping me determine

The breadth and weight

Of my relationship.


I love my sips of sorrow

For, they purge me of

The brimming emotions

That may wreak havoc

To my composed self

If nourished longer.
