I Read Your Poems

SOMETHING I LOOK AT-144
BY-SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY

 I READ YOUR POEMS

My friend!
I am no Shakespeare, no Wordsworth
Nor a Bradley or Coleridge
Just an average reader of poetry
Who reads your poem with heart and mind

It is my honour and privilege
You invited me to your poem
To enter into the heart of your heart
Feelings and emotions, ideas and passion Crystallised into a beautiful verse
I feel elated, like a child with the moon in hand,
An irresistible urge
To have a glimpse and know what and how it is

When I read your poem
I see you in front
Feel you, feel your mind and heart
Smile and tears going into the composition
It blankets my mind and take me to your world,
A world of poetry,
A world where I truly live

I could see the smile,
From the core of your heart
Fathom the depth of your ecstasy
When you get your words right
Emotions move like a flowing stream
Simile and metaphors are in perfect harmony
I could sense that moment
When your heart rhymes with your lines
Your inner being dances in joy
When poetry and poet becomes one
And you are dragged into a different world
A state of undefined bliss
Where remains hardly any difference
Between you and your poetry

No one is like you
No one can ever be
I respect you
Respect your lines,
The efforts, feelings and madness
That go in to the making of your compositions
Like you, your creations are so unique,
So different.
I am just in love with them
Don’t think your poems go unnoticed
I read them with love and sincerity
Always a pleasure reading you, your mind
Emotions and feelings
Go on writing, go on unfolding yourself
And tagging me as and when you like
I am here to to read all these
If they are not against decency and morality,
Peace, amity and humanity.

    When your heart rhymes with your lines
    Your inner being dances in joy
    When poetry and poet becomes one
    And you are dragged into a different world
    A state of undefined bliss…An honest appreciation of poems written by other poets…
