Nepenthe 

Nepenthe (n) : Something that makes you forget grief or suffering.

A flock of starlings

chirped words of sweetness

And my heart was astir in seconds

The grief and sorrows carved in

pieces of my heart dissolved in nothing

How congenial are these beautiful winged-creatures

That heals my soul as nepenthe

And same the stars do in nights

Shadow my darkness by starlight

Making heart forget all the pains

And resurrecting my soul

-SHREYA

By Shreya Sharma

I read poems. Sometimes I write poems. And when I am doing nothing, I am sipping coffee.
