SOMETHING I LOOK AT-47
BY-SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY
Nothing lures me,
neither the beauty of the present nor the glamour of future,
no present to live in, no future to look for
i am in my solitary asylum, but not all alone.
You are with me, every minute
your sweet memory never allows me
to live alone, captivates and enthralls me
and makes me feel as if i am in love for the first time.
I am completely lost in you,
always in your lap my sweetheart,
recapitulating and brooding over the lovely moments we had
Mumtaj ! I am in my cell, far away from the calculative world, what a better place could i have aspired for?
No one near, no royal grandeur,
no diplomacy and warfare, it is only you, whom i see and feel, talk to, and fall in love
as and when i want to.
