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,
Take Me Along
Just take me along.
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.
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.
Masks of Superiority
Our identities are masked by our skin and hair, Sadly, we can just never be truly bare.
Be a Man!
Under the rain, I feel the pain.
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.
Have a Good Day
You've woken up to a new day, Make everything go your way. The sun will rise,
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
Finding My Self
Is this me, or Is it my ego?
Handshake. Energy Transfer.
The Super Nine
No matter where we go,
We will continue to row,
Our boat of friendship.
Regardless of the tide,
We will continue the ride,
For this journey is far from its destination,
We don't even know our next station
