Verse – Suryasri Saha

Dreamers and Lovers


Not everyone will stay,
people would desert you sooner than expected.

The same conversations may not feel
so lively with some other person and the same
old lanes may not welcome us just the same.

Our own land may seem foreign at times
casting us away once we are gone and
the new one may seem more endearing.

The autumn leaves may fall off before
time and the Sun on a certain chilly
morning may not give its usual warmth.

Even the sky may seem closer at times
qualifying our limits but we, the ever so
occupied minds must never stop dreaming

merrily and loving heartily.

Verse – Geetika Jha

That Door

She locks that door knob just in time,
To find herself safe and divine.
For all the demons and the devil can’t reach out to her,
Here, the door the locked,
And here, she is the crown and the queen.

Here, she knows she is Henry’s Clare,
Waiting, yet content in her despair.
Sometimes, she changes her role and becomes Michael Blomkvist,
Witty as hell, sharp as a blade,
Moving around with all of his grace.

Lisbeth appeals to her in the darkest of hour,
For she knows, she was never a vower.
All of this mayhem stays inside the door,
Cuz outside, she’ll be just another lonely soul.

But she will rise, and rise above all.
She is the light and the illusion of cowl.
Let her rest, she needs to revive,
For when she wakes, she’ll be on the highs.

Verse – Anupreeta Chatterjee

Two Poems

Shaping MIdentity

 

In midst of dichotomies,
I treasure my identity.

Amidst all obstacles,
I work towards shaping my identity.

My identity is my authority
And I am shaping it for me.

Yes, I am selfish
Yes, I am in my world.

I owe my life the dignity:
Dignity of a woman, my identity as a human.

Dictions and predictions,
Are shaped by my intensity.

I will work towards building my identity.
My identity is my authority.

Desires & Emotions

Desires oozed from within
when he touched my soul with his hands.
Love emerged from wounded sacrifices
which we made to be with each other.

I could feel his flesh, lusting for love
I melted like a candle in his arms.

We met after a long time,
ours a long distance relationship
began which, with instant friendship.

Our desires melted when we kissed
it was pleasurable to close our eyes
and feel the adrenaline rushing through our bodies.

We cuddled each other,
even though nights were weary.
