Pradip Chattopadhyay

Without ever telling


There's something I couldn't tell you
remained in the heart all along
something that is though long overdue
never made it to the tongue!

Yet I am sure by now you know
have read its mark on my eyes
the ripened feel seasons mellowed
revealed through all the disguise!

Don't know why could never tell it
like the way in ease lovers speak
though it's what says my heartbeat
ever failing to reach the tongue's tip!

Unspoken though hidden in the breast
what in stories two lovers easily say
without ever telling its show manifest
I couldn't have it told to this day!

    Certain things, we don't have the courage or the right occasion to tell or may be don't feel like saying aloud, but are implicitly understood in course of time...! But there is a pleasure in holding such sweet feelings of love unspoken.... Enjoyed! (Report) Reply

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
