Journey through Loneliness

a poem by Atanu Dasgupta

I’m sitting on the park bench alone,
Remembering times that has passed,
Waiting for the sunset, seeing the reflections on the tranquil water,
Life was a long traverse along the edge.

Met people who are strangers today,
Where is the faith that used to bind us all together,
Flowers still blossom, music remind me of the past,
Childhood memories are stronger than realities.

Life shapes like a clay mould,
God only know shape our life takes,
We are desperate insects trying to get out of the web,
Loneliness eats us like a cloud obscured the moon tonight,
What did we get here, what have we lost infact

Anything we planned for the new generation,
In the midst of deception we have traversed all years,
Waiting for the happiness, and peace.
There are flowers still and birds to my sing,
Are we missing the glory, the thrust to be alive.

In the absence of the beloved…

a poem by Atanu Dasgupta

A year has passed by since we met,
I’m left with sweet memories and reflections,
You are the fragrance in my life,
But the moon is clouded today.

Can hear storm from the distant shore,
We are united as one in eternal peace,
Dreamt of you last night, you were like a flower, my queen,
A week has passed in anticipation waiting for greener pastures.

Cloudy nights and storms scare me today,
Wish you were here to pacify my soul,
Thoughts scatter briskly in twilight and dawn,
Your love has strengthened my soul.

Allowed me to take up challenge which I forbid
I’m weak and tired, like a bird in a trap,
You are my mistress, to open the door to freedom,
My life revolves around you, I’m waiting for sunrise.
