She uses the letters RKS to define herself. On Instagram she writes under the name Thes.Khel. This is her poem Your sins, under my skin.
About the poetess
She is 21 years-old and is always in search of stories in the colours blue and grey. She writes poetry, because it is her passion. Her words, as she calls them, give her a sense of inner peace. These are the reflections of her own world, not the world of others.
Just like many poets we have promoted so far, this poetess finds it easy to express herself through poetry:
“They lighten the weight of memories, I keep inside my head.”
About the poem
Her motivation to write this poem is the luggage you are forced to take with you. The emotions, the memories. All because of others. They want you to hold on to these, no matter what. Even when they bring you down.
The poem tells us more. This poetess seems to realize, that she has been carrying the weight of emotions and memories of other. Because she cares. Where does this leave her?
Your sins, under my skin
I shed my skin to let you know,
what has been kept under as a mystery for ages,
covered with tattoos,
woe was me! That you couldn’t solve a bit,
even though, it wasn’t hard to begin,
but you were scared to find,
that it was all your sins, I always kept
as if they were mine.
