Best Poem of Padma Prasad Devkota

Dr. Faustus

When I was idealistic and young,
I was Dr. Faustus:
ready to love any beauty for while,
willing to risk heaven for the mysteries of the world,
determined to rule it rough,
saying, 'All this is mine! '

No bespectacled gaze could fathom my heart
that welled up with truth and certainty;
no power ruled that could ever curb
my natural spontaneity.
I walked like a lord who could change the world
with a snap of the finger of my will.

Although truth has eluded my grasp ever since,
certainty is a legend I still love;
Dr. Faustus too is alive and...

I wished her good night and my wish came true.
She purrs her dreams in bedded melody.
Beside her warm and comforting length
awake to pitch black silence of the night
I toss and turn in silent agony
like a reed in the current of a stream
that will not stop … that cannot stop at all
until it has reached the blackest carrion sea.
