Suraj Samtani Poems
A Mathematical Relationship
I now realise the value of time. In less than a quarter, our distances have been multiplied. Our communication has been divided.
Losing Life To Fear
In fear of being heard, In fear of being understood,
An outsider's love is pure, An outsider's love is unconditional. There is no duty to maintain the love. There is no pressure to maintain the love.
The Silent Divorce
Yes. I do confess. I do want to talk to you.
A Day's Worth Of Cricket
You came here without a single fear.
Masks Of Superiority
Our identities are masked by our skin and hair, Sadly, we can just never be truly bare.
Handshake. Energy Transfer.
Take Me Along
Just take me along.
Be A Man!
Under the rain, I feel the pain.
Yes, it has been a while. & I thought this issue would have been like a closed file.
The Unseen Evergreen Scene
With such beauty being seen, My love for you remains evergreen.
Have A Good Day
You've woken up to a new day, Make everything go your way. The sun will rise,
Sister, Happy 29th Birthday!
Welcome to the first day of the last year of your life’s third decade, An opportune time to gift your life a thrilling upgrade! ‘May all your wishes come true’, Is a cliché unused by few.
The Presence Of Love
Where were you when I needed you the most? I realise that your mental presence is permanent. But your physical? Oh how I missed that. I deserve enlightenment
When we took our first breath,
did we ever think it would be a threat?
When we first spoke,
did we ever think we'd choke?
When we go on our first date,
thinking would she be our soul mate?
