A confused soul







Trapped in the whirl of
Uncertainty, a confused
Soul shrieks...rescue me!


Time is running fast
Prospects are slipping, yearns for
words of assurance

Thanks!:)

Judith Westerfield said...

Great interpretaion of the prompt. Trapped by our own uncertainty - perhaps no one can rescue us from what we have created on our own?

ND Mitchell said...

Those are the words we can all agree on! Nicely written.

Gemma Wiseman said...

Uncertainty can be like an uncontrolled whirl within a prison!

joanne said...

We have all been there.....awaiting those comforting words...

I like this. It tells a story. Maybe a new Dr Who episode outlined in haiku?

Tarang Sinha said...

@ Alicekeysmd: I don't know about "Dr Who" but it can be a story of many confused souls. Glad you liked it. Thanks!:)

really enjoyed the time slipping piece: it doesn't matter how much one convinces oneself it isn't a big deal, there is always that nagging old "time slipping" eating away.

Meenakshi Malhotra said...

Sometimes only words are that we need to rescue a soul from a state of wretchedness. Lovely haiku!

I find both of these chilling really. I seem to get a different message from them than some of the other readers. I read the words of desperation rather than hope. Nice writing, and thanks for participating in Poets United!

Laura said...

this is a yearning that seems endless... no matter how much one is reassured, it returns again and again.

Judy Roney said...

Wow! I feel the pain of this poem and the hope for rescue.

Sherry Blue Sky said...

I can remember feelings like this, which you have captured well. One wants to assure the narrator: trust the unfolding - for all will be well.

Kim Nelson said...

the first haiku is powerful, requiring no more words to carry full impact. well done.

Ella said...

I agree we search for hope and help!
I love how well you shared your message! :D

Susan said...

Sometimes external rescue does not exist and inner strength must arise.

Tarang Sinha said...

@ Mary: Desperation is somehow common for a confused soul, trapped in an eddy of uncertainty, as it desperately yearns to come out of that phase...Thank you!:)

@ Laura: Maybe you're right. One has to put effort to get out of this situation. But words of assurance bring some solace to some extent :)

@ Judy Roney: Glad you felt what I tried to portray. Thanks!:)

@ Sherry Blue Sky: Yes! Thank you!:)

Tarang Sinha said...

@ Kim Nelson: Thank you!:)

@ Ella: Thanks so much!:)

@ Susan: sometimes...Maybe you're right! Thanks:)
