Rise

Poem By Pragyan Dutta

The history you wrote with your sour and tales of lies
You may pace me in the sheer mud
But I 'll Rise.....

My boldness upsets you?
Still my worries caused you misery?
Because i held my head so high
Pumping in my heart

Like pumpkin and like sun
With belief of tides
Just like the hopes leap high
I 'll Rise......

Curious eyes that wanted to see me broken, bowed head and lowered eyes
Spirits falling down like teardrops and soulful cries?
Still I 'll Rise......

You pumped me with your words,
You rip me with your eyes,
Often killed by your hate-fullness,
But like a breeze
I 'll Rise......

Out of the shame of being raped, chained and often drugged for sex
I 'll Rise.....
From the past that was grounded by pain
I 'll Rise......
Escaping the nights of fright and doubts
I 'll Rise.....
Like a dream of a morn
I 'll Rise......

Dwindled Dawn

Ink of fog that i wear on misty morning
The prism of infinite spectrum that divide my sadness

The Silent Warrior

The clutch of thoughts couldn't bind her,
Her radiant eyes, grave face and hands was on her sword-hilt
Drifted her head high

Shadow

All around the hurdle
All around the terrace
Every puff i took,
Act as a scent of death.

Stay Away From The Poisoned Apple.

Lights of absence wants to take part of your memory
Pendulous memories shined like a solitaire in the celestial sphere
A slave to tootsies, haiku wits get together
By not seeing the patch of velvet

Sometimes

Sometimes our karma acts like an volunteer harlot
Sometimes enough is just almost enough
