I really don’t want to look

Closing my eyes is not enough

So I turn my neck sideways

Pretending the problem doesn’t exists

It’s only when I run smack into it

That the reality becomes real for me

  1. Sumptuous and entertaining post Sadje. I get the message loud and clear and that is Avoiding things.

    Well written post and I love the ending “That the reality isn’t real for me”. Sometimes in life all you want it is to turn the other way 💯

    Really good Post🔥🔥🔥

  2. I’m trying to adjust and organise, my blogging aspirations, as they made me behave overwhelmingly on New Year.

    I tried to write some blog posts. One at a time. Featured images are ready. But the writing is pending…
    And I don’t feel to read in this mental condition.
    But your poems are short, simple and straight.
    The term “Avoidance” speak my thoughts. (Your words speak my thoughts.)

    1. Thanks Lokesh. I understand what you’re going through. Don’t overwhelm yourself. Do one short post at a time. Sharing a quote or a humorous line at a time May be enough. Take care. All the best.

  3. Reality can be hard to take sometimes. Those with dimentia face a new reality often… daily or hourly. We’ll be lunching with such a friend. And I fear at this point once they return to ‘their’ normal reality (of constant care) they will soon forget that we ever went out this day.
