Food - Poem by Palas Kumar Ray

I will fail to explain how but I know by now
Poetry is food for many others like me.
Like every other food everyday in my dish
Pieces of delicious Poetry need be served.

Mostly I like to intake poetry self made.
Repeatedly I intake the same poetry dish
Which everyday tastes different, day after day.

I don't know how good or bad this food is
But it works well to keep me fresh everyday.
I'm not insomniac but hardly I get to sleep
only few hours as poetry keeps me awake.

Poetry keeps me awake even when I sleep.
Poetry keeps me asleep when I'm awake.
And I also know this also happens to you.
But people in general will not understand.

I also live with those people who do not
understand what I fail to explain But
they are the beautiful people I think about.

You must be living with many of them
who have mindsets differently molded.
They need no food as such and therefore
I feel no urge to share my food with them.
