The First Night After Marriage

Poem by Asit Kumar Sanyal

It was the extreme dark as no-moon night
Continuously drizzling from long hours
Load shading was active on its routine job
The jackals were howling in bamboo clusters.

Her soft voice was whispering in my ear
Her long black hair covered me to sway
I was melting like an iceberg in South Pole
Suddenly the rain started … I drifted away.

I discovered myself in the indistinct dawn
When the people were moving for natural call
The rain had loosened its grip but she did not
It was my ancestral house in west Bengal.

    do comment on this one o gr8 poet
    MEMORIES ARE for life long

    it has nothing to do with age

    at each stage

    memories are recorded
    indelibly

    for times again
    we can recall it ah
    when we want it
    dementia be not a refrain

    memories we love for ever
    alas not in vain
    but through our veins

    now please read my poems

    beautiful poem about marriage

    Her soft voice was whispering in my ear
    Her long black hair covered me to sway
    I was melting like an iceberg in South Pole
    Suddenly the rain started … I drifted away.

    sometimes in life marriage is too much for others thats why they dont last

    thanks for sharing(Report)Reply
