Drought

Guest post: Climate change is already making droughts worse | Carbon Brief

I’m longing to cry, like a sunflower longing for the Sun to shine upon it. It’s surprising for a girl, who was once so sensitive and emotional that she would cry over the silliest and most petty of things, to now find it difficult to grieve upon her sorrows. There is no tragical tale in my life that makes me want to cry, but those little things that have been mounding up inside of me all this time…

I can’t hold it inside me anymore. That is why, I thought letting it out through crying could help me move on and forget about it all. But how do I cry, when my eyes are as dry as the drought in my mind?

Although, some part of me finds this state comfortable to be in; it’s an excuse I can give to myself when I’m disoriented and lost. My thoughts have consumed all the moisture from my body, making my skin feel as dry as an autumn leaf. And therefore, my mind, body and soul are in a state of drought. I guess, times have changed; now I cry out words, not tears…

  1. Kamya didi, I love this. Your words are as thought-provoking as ever, and I am speechless. I love the part-‘There is no tragical tale in my life that makes me want to cry, but those little things that have been mounding up inside of me all this time…’, probably because I can relate to it.
    And we writers do bleed on paper.

    1. Thank you so much, Rishi!
      I can’t say I’m glad you can relate to this, because it’s truly not a nice feeling and I wouldn’t want anyone to feel this way, but I’m glad you could connect…
      Yes, we do, and I guess that leads to the creation of the most beautiful and powerful pieces.
