With art and without words

by Kavita

Mere defence
Or weapons of offence
I have them by my side
because they exist in opulence.

I see no use
of most of my pursuits
that spin words around
only to lift life off ground.

But then they are there,
most of the time.
in my mind or outside it.
Disturbing a thought
or distracting like an ink blot.

I wish i wasn’t a woman of words
and could reach out
without a doubt
with art
and without a smart start.
