Of Promises

I will never hide
the stories
I have piled
beneath my skin
and the pain
I have stashed
under my bones
or the longing
that I breathe
with bruised nostrils
only if you promise
you will never tire of
peeling off the layers
that residues of past
have accumulated
on my body
like rotting scabs.

    1. Thanks so much, Srijana! I am glad you enjoyed the read and found it worth such significant adjective. Please pardon me for a late response as I’ve been inactive on the forum since past few months. A new post is up just today and I would be really happy if you get some time to go through it. 😊

      You’re such an inspiring soul and so are your writings. I very much look forward to reading more from you.

      Much love and power to you, my dear!
