    This is so relatable. I remebered a reading somewhere that there is a hole in you heart that is made for and can only be filled by Allah. “A foreign space always lingers” reminded me of that. πŸ™‚

    Hi Zee, that’s a great poem. It sounds like the definition of heartbreak to me. Did you write this? Who is Bano? I’m intrigued.

      Hi there Mary, It is about heart break..after all everything in the end is about heart break, isn’t it?

      And No I didn’t write this , it’s by some writer who goes by the pen name Bano. I don’t know much about her either, found this piece of writing randomly and really liked it so decided to share this.

      Thank you so much for reading ❀

    This is very deep, but almost like the reality of our “selves” growing, our “material” may tear as we expand in our thoughts and feelings and we patch those torn areas with new, unfamiliar material? Anyway, that’s what I got out of it, we’re all patchworks of art, unique and beautiful. πŸ˜€ ❀

    What a sad and twisted work of art, Zee 😦 Reading it makes me sad. But at the same time, I can relate so much to this. When something doesn’t go right, we try our very best to make everything better. We try different solutions (usually to please others) but sometimes unfortunately nothing works and it all gets worse – and that’s sort of like sewing and resewing that piece of shredded heart.

    This writing by Bano also reminds me of my stuffed blue monkey. It has a mouth that keeps coming off no matter how much I sew it back on. But no matter how this monkey looks, I still love it very much πŸ™‚ ❀ Hope you are well, Zee. Always love it when you post πŸ™‚


    • lifeconfusions says:

      Yeah, the sewing and resewing is what gets frustrating at times 😦
      So we end up leaving it as it is at times and just lose hope that it will ever eventually mend…

      I guess that is the beauty in imperfections, you love your monkey despite of how he looks. So cute πŸ™‚

      Thank you for your ever kind and heart-touching comment Mabel. I really appreciate all the love ❀

    In a way, this reminds me of the character of Edward Scissorhands. It seemed that he could do nothing right, even when his heart meant well. I hope that you are doing well today, Zee! ❀
