I Bleed Words Sometimes

Hey woman!

“A woman knows very well that, though a wit sends her his poems, praises her judgement solicits her criticism, and drinks her tea, this by no means signifies that he respects her opinions, admires her understanding, or will refuse, though the rapier is denied him, to run through the body with his pen.”
~ Virginia Woolf, Orlando

Hey woman,

Do you not understand?

The poems are love, no doubt, but not selfless.


Hey woman,

It’s OK to cry.

It’s OK to smile amidst tears too.

Someday it will all be over and they’ll miss you.


Hey woman,

Wake up from your slumber you call life.

Look at the bright side,

You survived.


Hey woman,

Quit climbing the uphill journey of expectations.

You aren’t worth the disappointment.

You deserve better.


Hey woman,

Sometimes you won’t be treated right.

It’s OK.

Believe that you should be.

Walk away even if it hurts.


Hey woman,

Don’t be swept away by pretty lies.

Don’t believe everything they say.

Sometimes beautiful words are daggers.


Hey woman,

It’s OK to look at the reflection and feel ugly.

It’s OK to feel small.

But don’t forget to get up.

Dust yourself.

And walk again with your head held high.


Hey woman,




But love yourself first.


Hey woman,

You’re stronger than this.

You’re beautiful.

You’re everything they wish to be.


Hey woman,

You’re a woman.

So smile, darling.

Shine bright.

  2. I am in love with this piece. To me, it is like a monologue I will listen to at any cost. In its own way, it is strong, sharp yet tender at the same time. Beautiful choice of words. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and the walk I took with it.
