Theme: Plight

Sad Saga of Love


The white-washed ceiling stares still

At her loneliness, her mute sufferings

The alienated bedspread crinkles blue

Sensing her insomniac encircled self

Locked, suppressed, oppressed long

Around the four-cornered stony walls

Of life's dejection and despondency...!

Her impassioned vision with the hope

Flickers inside the gloomy solitude

Exuberance of feelings writhes to see
All the beauty of the joyous world,

Her soul's reflection in water crystal

Cascading in someone's heart's spring....

With someone’s absence in proximity,

Her intimacy gropes a friendly pillar....

Love cries in cuddled tears of darkness

To transcend a barrier, age long taboo

For her freedom and salvation forever....

Joy seems flaring lifting flooded light,

Yet it does flicker and diminishes down

Scattered in her closet of tragic life

She writhes locked, shattered to pieces

Her beauty, long unrevealed and unseen

Yet realized by love treasured in bosoms

In throbs with incessant thuds inside...!
