Amann Aroraa

(28 March 1993 / New Delhi)


The world is too large a place.
I quiver for my little space.
When I feel misfit in my little world,
I feel loneliness.

People do not know words to harm me.
Pain does not know how to charm me.
When I harm myself and cause pain,
I feel loneliness.

My love expressed in an unsent letter.
For her, it does not matter.
When I read that letter to myself,
I feel loneliness.

The moonlight and bonny stars
Casting shadows in late hours.
When I fear an unknown shadow,
I feel loneliness.

For willing eyes, there is much to love
The rain, the rose, white dove.
When I set hateful eyes on something,
I feel loneliness.

I owe enough to keep misery at bay.
I receive a gift as I receive a day.
When I see what lies in other's pouch,
I feel loneliness.

I dream an independent dream.
Swimming against the stream.
When I am frustrated and crush my dream,
I feel loneliness.

Love makes life worth.
Conquers all evils on Earth.
When I lose hope in hove,
I feel loneliness.

A myth forged by me.
Running away from my company,
Embracing the dark,
A welcome feast for evil
Accepting my worst self,
Denying myself a right to live.

A Loss of self love
A loss of oneself,
To insecurities, complexes,
Fears, hatred, envy
Non existent, unreal.
Self created myths.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
