The Other Name Poem by Avik Datta Gupta

The Other Name

Rating: 5.0


When did you ask me for my other name?
The name that came out from my pen
The name that haunts me to delight
Oh! I have another name

I simply hate myself the way I am
That I'd like to be that other man
That hiding man inside me
Oh! where's that other man?

Another name and another me
Which is for me and for the world to see?
My true self or my counterfeit?
Oh! God! which one is the real me

What's in a name? It is just a game
Of bitter truths and sweet deceit
As I toss the coin on every street
Oh! I feel so incomplete

The classic maze in the misty haze
Is finding me from my own self
As I rummage through that untidy shelf
Although a million words are scribbled
The papers stays blank

Which one is real.. The hiding man inside me or the man the world see. Beautiful poem. The real person always hide inside us and always reveal to the mist loved person only.
