My dismay

a poem by Amit Patil

This heart is sad, but still can’t shout.
It feels very bad, but has no doubt.

It feels the pain, but still can’t cry.
It sees the rain, but still feels dry.

It hears her voice, but still can’t run.
It feels the noise, but still acts dumb.

It wants some joy, but gets bad bruises.
Its not a toy, but truth she refuses.

It feels its death, but says no word.
It wants to fly, but is a wing clipped bird.

It has been alone, but doesn’t mind.
Its not a stone, but still acts blind.

It has self respect, but still does bow.
It lives in hope, but gets no love.

Candles you have lit in my heart

a poem by Amit Patil

The candles you’ve lit
in darkness of my heart
you’ve brightened me up,
you’ve given me a restart
the flowers have bloomed
just’coz of your light
their fragrance has
given me back my eyesight
my bruises have healed
with your miracle touch
you’ve relieved my pain
in a beautiful way such
let me live in the candles you’ve lit
and this life
I’ll spend for you
every bit
don’t ever
make me
from you apart
‘I love you
from the depth of my heart’.
