Poems by Jyotirmaya Thakur
I am a frozen love
cold and discontented
hidden under a hill of snow
with touch of Winter on my brow.
A broken branch of a tree
my heart still beats within a twig
hoping is a fragile undertaking
tear drops mixed with frosty flakes falling.
My grey days in despondent thoughts
scattered on dark fearsome clouds
scared as I fall to pieces along the way
wishing to put it back on a sunny day.
I find a flower in the closet
dried but not crushed in my jacket
one that reminds my intact fragrance
Coffee cup in trash,engraved resemblance.
It’s true I am still here and kicking
although not a beauty but so much to give
I know that there’s no one quite like me
a writer’s love never dies nor is in vain.
Love me like an ordinary being,
Not assuming or associating,
Love me, if you want, but if you do,
Love me without intensity of blue.
Not in the abyss of love for oceans,
Or velvet zephyrs of windy fusion,
Nor place me on portals of illusion,
Nor kiss me with books quotations.
Don’t compare me with full moon,
Or stars that shine too soon ,
Or fragrant flowers that bloom ,
No romantic gestures of buffoon.
Be not a poet of fluent words ,
Don’t make up with sapphires,
Or shower me with diamonds,
Just wrap me with caring choirs.
You inspire me to compose ,
Pure presence like a fragrant rose,
Whose words move me to adore,
Power that resides within your core.
Love notes explode in the air,
When you say my name in despair,
Like a sonic boom my trained ears care,
And tingle my spine to impossibly dare.
All reasons surpass my love for you,
I am blind and wretchedly have no clue ,
I offer my devotion in abyss of seas blue,
And await for you to cover my soul true.
Love notes serenade the Moon,
When your footsteps enter the room ,
I am shifted like the molecules ,
As you like Earth’s gravity pull.
