Spoken Word – The Edge (republished)

I’m sharing my very first spoken word, that I posted on 10th December 2020 on my WordPress blog. I don’t know why I’m doing so all of a sudden but there could be several reasons – from reminiscence to reflection.

The Edge is a poem about my struggles during that time. On 7th November 2019 I was hit by brain hemorrhage on the right side. Over 1 year had passed by but it was definitely not easy for me to fully accept, understand & live with this new reality. The feeling of broken & repaired at the same time. It just didn’t affect me alone but my surroundings as well, including the family. I could see this struggle on my inner screen as flow of images. So I decided to write those images in the form of this freestyle poetry. These words became so intense, at least in my head, that I felt like recording it in my voice. I didn’t know how to create spoken word back then. I didn’t bother searching it either coz I wanted to create this spoken word immediately, with whatever technical knowledge / tools I had. So I recorded my voice on my phone, created a Powerpoint presentation on my laptop, played the voice recording on it, timed the PP slides to sync with my voice & capture this all as a video through a free screen recorder software. I’m presenting the same original spoken word to you all.

Please put sound on…

I sit sharp on the edge of my bench in the dark with a hatchet in my hand to break open my senses & to claim that my pain in the veins is not vain but insane

But I get so mad & a bit sad when I spread metal scraps on myself coz then I bleed the beads so discreet on my crease to decrease the misery

So I feel quite shaky as if my skin is so thin like a leaf & it starts to burn instantly to create the debris that comes out from the heat of the seed

I’m torn at my core that I feel this need to ease & burn my peace into pieces on the street that’s filled with so many deep & some holes unseen

So I scream in infinity with my fluctuating beat coz I can’t simply breathe & it seems I’m the beast hinged to the scene of the shattered dream

I relapse on my screen coz this all feel so diseased when I see this degree of release & then I step explicitly into the bed of fire to become the deceased

But then I focus on to drop my sores with the source of my scope in this hope that one day I’ll for sure end this whole to simply blow everything to the pure

I published my book on 7th November 2021 – exactly 2 years after the bleeding. It’s my second birth or perhaps the first real one.

This Region

I know my brain ain’t no xeon
And perhaps it’s not rendering every bit spot on
But it processes the complex with pure intuition
And my eyes glow as the intense UV neon
They read the hidden with clear vision

The rocks in glass with the golden key on
Unlocking the transparent to create the free zone
The black & white are my preferred crayons
Rubbing them on this paper sheet with me down
Breathing rhymes of my life with beats on

There’s this sacred place, there’s this region
It’s the open space in every single season
It’s inner peace that brings me close to the horizon
There’s simply no chase coz it’s truly spiritual
Connecting to my piece where love is the sole ritual

Lightning Rhymes Review by Jeff Flesch

A few days back I received a mail from this wonderful being…an amazing poet, that goes by the name – Jeff Flesch |@fleschj…Jeff had tried to submit this review of my poetry book – Lightning Rhymes on Amazon several times…but due to some kind of glitch/issue, it never showed up…so Jeff decided to email me this heart touching review, which I’m sharing with you all…My gratitude to you, dearest Jeff…I’m simply delighted & honoured 🙏✨❤️💫

Review of Lightning Rhymes by Jeff Flesch:

“Lightning Rhymes, by Navin Manik, is a tour de force of poems that enter into the reader’s heart, blossoming like wildflowers stretching towards the sun of spiritual transcendence. Navin’s poetry is raw and powerful, connecting spiritual experiences to nature in a way that leaves the reader breathless, and in want of more. The feelings Navin evokes throughout the book are stunningly descriptive and can resonate with any human being on this planet, for we’ve all been to places Navin describes. Deep pain, trauma, heartache, anxiety, depression, etc., are woven into the language inside of these beautiful poems with an expert hand. Likewise, Navin expresses deep love, hope, and the beauty of human connection throughout his verse. I highly recommend Lightning Rhymes, it is a book that will resonate in your heart and mind.”

Announcement – Lightning Rhymes is Out Now

Grace guided me to follow this flowic dream of mine

Self-realization, raw emotions & other experiences I share & rhyme

My gratitude to you to be with me all this time 🙏🤍✨

Lightning Rhymes Book Cover

Dear all,

I’m excited to share that my poetry collection is out now. A dream I had once, is now a reality.

Self-realization, experiences, raw emotions & some other dimensions is what I’m sharing with you through my poetic creations.

Lightning Rhymes is the title of my poetry collection. This name simply came to me & it felt right instantly. In September 2020, I had written a poem with the same title. But I never thought that one day it would be the name of my book. I strongly believe, there’s always a reason why things happen. The book cover designed by myself is purely intuitive.

I loved each & every moment of this journey – from working on the manuscript to designing the cover to registering the ISBN number to uploading the electronic files & to finally getting them approved. And now here I am, with my debut book. Believe me, it’s such a great feeling that I can’t express in words. I hope you’d enjoy my poetry collection. Much love 🙏🤍✨
