Listen - In The Silence Of Love

Poem By Sumeet Mahanti

Straining my ears to listen
for the love in the air – unfelt, invisible,
at times – timid, shy and sans expression
felt everywhere – though intangible

Just fear of embarrassing the subject
maketh the real words of love – unexpressed,
yet in actions hidden underneath
-the true embodiments of love possessed

Seeking the hidden love underneath
the words spoken- though seemingly cruel
As I look with intent and hear with passion
to search for love – so fulfilling- that is life’s fuel

Listen not only to words- but actions
accompanying them – unseen
the expression portrayed on faces
that seldom betrays the meaning of true love- so clean

Listen to the sound of silence
sometimes deafening- yet conveying
the message of love – heard without listening
-true love felt without touching

Coming Home

As I set back home
for my motherland-
that nurtured my childhood,
memories flooding into my mind


Bedecked with the golden moments of time
Mother Earth carrying the burden of numerous lives,
ornately decorated with rivers, mountains, seas and land
-beauty of a creation so magnanimously it imbibes


As I sit by the sea
Watching the ebbs of tide;
Dance to the tunes of nature
My mind overcome by bliss

Cupid's Arrow

Cupid’s arrow rests at unease
lodged in the heart of the deceased lover,
A pain so indifferent to the life at hand
the lover turning blind to the times forthcoming

The Dream

Her soothing hands caressing my forehead
a torrent of feeling rushing through my mind,
as my first sight out of slumber
rests on the dainty figurine – caging a heart so kind
