MARTYOSHKA


I am in and I am out,
Confused me to confuse all,
I bear the pain of secrets to kill,
I am sealed within myself, with a spell.

I crack and I am back,
I am layered, to fool;
But I want a way out-
‘Cause I reduce with each pull.

I have many faces but I am just the same.
Decipher me to survive, it’s nearly death’s game.
Kingdoms failed and people slain
Just to know what I hide for ages, in vain.

This is my song, this is my tale;
I am the oldest “Matryoshka” of the Czarland.

-VAISAKHI MISHRA

p.s.- "Matryoshka" the word i used in my poem is short for Matryoshka doll. The Matryoshka dolls are the nested wooden Russian dolls.

  7. Hello.
    Visiting from the group Bloggers Reflections.

    Many years ago, my wife used to be fascinated with Russian dolls. They are certainly unique to say the least. Many layers to this poem. Nice! Thanks for sharing.
