When eyes met..


The same winter sun shone brightly that day
That day, when I broke all the threads of resistance;

And walked towards the lobby which
I used to gaze from a distance;

They were too profound to be said
in those few precious moments
I sunk desperately into those eyes
that had made all the difference;

Only to find a desert,
All dry, green was all dead
Worst had been seen but not tired still
They had walked all, what I was to see
Only they were anxious
as they looked into me

They couldn't be those eyes
May be fire of the youth had blurred my sight

May be I was mistaken and
had seen only a reflection of mine..

Those days, those nights only I burnt inside? ?

May be they are right-
'IT'S ALL IN THE MIND'

    Ms Shivani Agarwal is a promising poet with a clear power of discernment as could be seen from a few of her poems. Quality of words used and transparency of thoughts expressed have their own acceptability over here. In the next phase she is expected to look at life with a euo social approach which will bring out the best in her as a poet. Thank you poet for being here with a lot of different tales to tell.

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
